Default Steelers sign 10 players to offseason roster

Steelers sign 10 players to offseason roster

The Steelers today announced the signing of 10 players to their offseason roster.

Seven of them were on their practice squad last season:

WR Dallas Baker, C/G Doug Legursky, CB Roy Lewis, S Ryan Mundy, TE Dezmond Sherrod, RB Justin Vincent and LB Donovan Woods.

Three new players signed are RB Stefan Logan, WR Brandon Williams and FB Ryan Powdrell.

Logan (5-7, 185) rushed for 889 yards on 122 carries (7.3 avg.) and caught 52 passes for 477 yards (9.2 avg.) and three TDs in 2008 with the British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League. He signed with the B.C. Lions as a free agent in May of 2008 after spending time in 2007 on the Miami Dolphins practice squad as an undrafted rookie out of South Dakota. The 27-year-old Logan spent five years out of football before enrolling at South Dakota in 2003.

Williams (5-11, 170) played in 23 NFL games with the San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams from 2006-07. He was released by the Rams prior to the 2008 regular season and did not play with another team. Williams was selected in the third round (84th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft by the 49ers after a college career at Wisconsin. He signed with the Rams as a free agent in October of 2007. Williams has returned 35 punts for 245 yards (7.0 avg.) and 38 kickoffs for 888 yards (23.4 avg.) during his NFL career.

Powdrell (5-11, 254) originally signed as an undrafted rookie with the Green Bay Packers in 2007 but was released prior to the regular season. The 25-year old Powdrell, who played in college at Southern California, spent a week on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' practice squad in 2008.

It's good to see the off-season has started.

Is it September yet?

Williams was a 3rd round pick, so he at least has some talent. See a trend with Logan and Williams? both for returning.

Powdrell looks like a big boy. A possible true FB?

We can definitely use a consistent and reliable returner. I was very impressed in our STs this year but we couldn't return kick-offs if our lives depended on it.

ya logan will most likely have to be a returner, he was an explosive play kinda guy here in canada but he is way too small to be an actual runningback in the NFL. But he does have the talent to be a very good returner

I guess this Logan guy is the real deal.. esp to be looked at for kick returns. Looking forward to see what he's got.

Between Williams and Logan it would be nice to find a good returner. It would be nice to get the ball in good field position an d not inside the 20 yard line all the time.
I would like to see more of Mundy and see what he has maybe we can work him into the rotation some this year.
