Eagles reportedly working on extension for Beau Allen

The Eagles may be losing defensive tackle Bennie Logan as a free agent and they are reportedly working to make sure that they don’t lose another one at this time next year.

Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the team is working on a contract extension for Beau Allen. Allen is heading into the final year of the four-year contract he signed as a seventh-round pick in 2014.

Allen appeared in all 16 games and played about 40 percent of the snaps on defense for the Eagles last season. He generally played a run-stopping role and Eagles personnel boss Howie Roseman suggested this week that a bigger role is in Allen’s future.

“We’re excited about Beau, both in his ability to be powerful in the run game but also his athleticism to work edges,” Roseman said. “He has pass-rush moves. With an increased opportunity, we think he’ll be an even better player to our team.”

Roseman said “you try to keep as many good players as you can” when discussing Logan, but he should be a popular player on the open market and the team doled out a lot of money to Fletcher Cox last year.

    I think Beau is better than what some Philly writers seem to think.

    Right idea, wrong DL. Logan is a better investment

    I sure hope so. He was a good reserve; I just hope he’s a good starter to go along side Cox.

    The Eagles weren’t going to be able to pay Logan. He’s going to command a great contract and I wish him well.

    Translation: We lost out on the better guy logan, so now we will overpay the mediocre guy so the fanbase doesn’t completely freak out.

    Bennie already makes 3x more what Beau does, and is gonna make $8-9m per year long term. If Beau makes more than $2m I’ll eat my hat. 29 tackles 1/2 sack this year.

    The guy is a solid role player. No reason to let him skate.
