Where The Roster Stands: Special Teams

Previously: Quarterback, Running Back, Fullback, Wide Receiver, Tight End, Offensive Tackle, Offensive Guard, Center, Defensive End, Defensive Tackle, Outside Linebacker, Middle Linebacker, Cornerback, Safety

Returning from last season: Jason Hanson, Nick Harris, Don Muhlbach

New to the team: Stefan Logan

We have finally arrived at the end of this position-by-position analysis of the Lions' roster, closing out the series with a look at the special teams. This is the most stable position on the roster, as the trio of Jason Hanson, Nick Harris and Don Muhlbach has been around for some time now. Hanson is the Lions' kicker, despite the hopes of some to replace him; Harris is the Lions' punter; and Muhlbach is the Lions' long snapper.

Although that part of the special teams has remained unchanged, I did put Stefan Logan, who was claimed on Sunday, in the "new to the team" category. Technically his position is wide receiver, but I doubt we will see him do much more than return kicks/punts for the Lions. In that regard he is a special teams guy and someone who should improve the Lions' return game in a big way. Other than him, though, nothing has changed on an individual position basis for special teams.

Need going forward?

Unless there is an injury or Logan proves to be ineffective like every other returner the Lions have plugged in since the Eddie Drummond era, there is no need to add any new faces at kicker, punter, long snapper or returner.
