The Redskins met with run-stuffing free agent lineman Bennie Logan Friday night, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, and visited with him again yesterday morning.

Logan spent the past four years with the Eagles, becoming a starter midway through his first season and formed a strong front alongside Fletcher Cox.

But Logan is not considered a strong pass-rusher with 5 1/2 career sacks, one reason Philly allowed him to hit the market.

The Eagles, and other teams, do not want to overpay for who they consider a two-down player. And that’s one reason some reports suggest Logan might be seeking a one-year deal, not being able to find what he wants on the open market.

The Redskins could benefit if that’s the case, much as they did with receiver Terrelle Pryor. His soft market resulted in a friendly one-year deal with Washington.

But as far as any pass-rush concerns with Logan, that won’t matter as much to Washington (depending on the ultimate price tag). The Redskins need run-stuffers. They have struggled against the run for a while — and that’s one reason the Redskins are rebuilding their defensive line.
