Bennie Logan, DT, Tennessee Titans
Larry Ogunjobi has done a fantastic job as a defensive tackle for the Browns. The former third-round pick out of Charlotte finished his second season with 52 tackles and 5.5 sacks for Cleveland. However, the D-tackle position next to him never seemed to be filled as players like Trevon Coley and Brian Price split many of the snaps. Neither player was bad, but the Browns can stand to upgrade the spot.

The 2019 NFL Draft class is stacked with talent at the position and chances are, Cleveland will find a player — or maybe even two in the draft. However, free agency will come and go before then and it would be wise to land a player capable of making some noise before the draft so they don’t feel hamstrung to make a move.
One player scheduled to be available who may come in cheap is Bennie Logan, who spent 2018 with the Tennessee Titans. After spending four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Logan joined the Kansas City Chiefs in 2017 on a one-year deal. He played well and had 52 tackles as a nose tackle for them that year. They didn’t retain him though, and Logan ended up with the Titans on a one-year deal worth $4 million — which was half of what he made with Kansas City.
He wasn’t as effective for the Titans, registering just 14 tackles all season, which is why his cost could be low. He’s still worth a look as he’s a strong player against the run — an area the Browns struggled in — and has recorded more than 50 tackles in three of his six seasons in the NFL. Logan may not be a full-time starter, but he can serve as a rotational run stuffer which is sorely needed.
