The Redskins are off to a strong start early in free agency, and a report shows the team is hosting Bennie Logan, who could further boost the team's defensive line.

Washington has started to rebuild its defensive line with the signings of Terrell McClain and Stacy McGee, of the Cowboys and Raiders respectively. While both players can help the Redskins depth, neither has shown to be a high-impact player, or the true nose tackle the defense has lacked since moving to the 3-4 scheme in 2010.
Well, with Logan, that could change.
A 27-year-old that played college ball at LSU, Logan played his best for the Eagles as a nose in the 3-4 scheme. In 51 starts in four years, Logan has made 5.5 sacks and 167 tackles. Remember, nose tackles tend not to make significant statistical contributions, but can change a defense by occupying offensive linemen.
Reports of the Redskins interest in Logan dates back to January, prior to the dismissal of former general manager Scot McCloughan. After the signings of McGee, McClain, D.J. Swearinger and Terrelle Pryor, adding Logan to the team would address a number of needs in the early stages of free agency.
