Logan transferred from Maryland after losing the 2015 season to a knee injury and played linebacker at Albany last season.
Logan was a four-star recruit coming out of high school; he was ranked the No. 3 player in Massachusetts by Rivals when he committed to Maryland. He accumulated 42 tackles in 19 games for the Terps, before a non-contact injury to his ACL in preseason spelled the end to his Maryland career.
He then transferred to Albany and made an impact. In 11 games, Logan more than doubled his tackle total from his time at Maryland, finishing with 96 tackles, two sacks and a pass breakup.
Logan will get a shot to help the Bills at a position of need, having gotten a lot of reps at weak-side linebacker during the camp. He was signed along with former Florida linebacker Anthony Harrell, who was also at the minicamp.
