Stefan Logan Hopes To Play Even Better In 2011

Before last season, the Detroit Lions had not had a returner that was a legitimate threat to take kicks to the house since Eddie Drummond was at the top of his game back in 2004. The lack of an explosive returner contributed to the Lions' overall special teams struggles in recent years, but those struggles went away after the team claimed Stefan Logan off waivers.

Logan was let go by the Steelers during the final round of roster cuts and Martin Mayhew wasted little time in putting in a claim for him. The Lions got him, and immediately Logan became their starting kick and punt returner. The move paid off in a big way, as Logan averaged 26.3 yards per kick return and took one back 105 yards for a touchdown. Logan also averaged 12.1 yards a punt return and had a long of 71 yards.

Although Logan's season was outstanding enough for him to be named a Pro Bowl alternate, he is looking to do even better in 2011.

"I was pleased with my performance coming in as a fresh guy with the Lions," Logan said "But I'm looking forward to doing a lot better in 2011 and improving on some of the things I did last year."

In addition to returning kicks, Logan also covered them. In fact, he had two fumble recoveries on kickoffs against the Packers in Green Bay.

His versatility also was showed off on offense when the Lions ran a package that put Logan in as a running back. He picked up a total of 95 yards on the ground on 16 attempts last season.
