IN LESS than three months, and possibly sooner, Bennie Logan is going to become a very rich man. The Eagles' defensive tackle hardly is living paycheck to paycheck now. He's in the final year of a rookie deal that will earn him $1.6 million this year.
LET'S START with a couple of numbers. The first is 149. The second is 864. The first is the number of picks after the Cowboys gobbled up running back Ezekiel Elliott with the fourth selection in the draft last spring that the Eagles claimed Wendell Smallwood in the fifth round.
THREE MONTHS ago, Aaron Grymes realized his dream and also had it crushed in the very same instant. The 5-11, 185-pound free-agent cornerback was having a terrific training camp and preseason for the Eagles. The former Canadian Football League All-Star looked like a good bet to make the team's season-opening roster, or at the very least, get signed to their practice squad.
