Default Stefan Logan likes being a secret

Stefan Logan likes being a secret

Posted by ESPN.com’s James Walker

PITTSBURGH -- Steelers safety Ryan Clark got a good chuckle at the sudden media attention his newest teammate, Stefan Logan, received in the locker room recently, which included a certain reporter in attendance.

“That’s going to be all over ESPN’s AFC North blog,” Clark said smiling.

At the moment Logan, a 5-foot-7 CFL import, is enjoying life as Pittsburgh’s best-kept secret. But as Clark warned, it may not last for long.

Logan has been electric in returning kicks in the preseason for the reigning champs. He will get several opportunities to impact Thursday’s primetime season opener against the Tennessee Titans.

“I want to be a best-kept secret,” Logan said. “That’s fine with me. I know guys are going to be game-planning to try and stop the special teams, but we’re going to game-plan, too.”

Pittsburgh’s special teams were average last season. The coverage units and kicker Jeff Reed did their part, but the punting and both returns were glaring weaknesses.

Although it didn’t impact the Steelers’ Super Bowl run, they still addressed those holes in the offseason with a healthy return of punter Daniel Sepulveda from a knee injury and adding a host of return prospects via the draft and free agency.

In the end, Logan stood out most among the group.

“Every time he catches the ball I hold me breath,” Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. “You don’t know what he’s going to do, and it’s a great feeling.”

After making the team, Logan changed his number from 41 to 11 to fit more with Pittsburgh’s receivers. That’s fine with Logan, who started training camp as a long shot and played his way on the Steelers' 53-man roster.

“It’s a blessing for me to be here with the Super Bowl champs,” a happy Logan said. “When I found out that I made the roster, it was kind of a touching moment.”

This might be the understatement of the year.

lol, he isn't going to be a "best kept secret" once he returns one to the house.

Heck, even if he doesn't go all the way, as long as he keeps up his average teams will quickly learn that he is a dangerous weapon.

Man, this guy is electric and he is no secret weapon anymore. He is just what the doctor ordered for our return game. Awesome pickup by Tomlin and Co.

He aint no secret... That dude can play.. This is one match up that scares me as a titans fan, our ST coverage units haven't looked great so far... Tell logan if he ses Chris Henry comming to duck, other than that we got nothing special brewing to stop Logan..GOOD FIND by the steelers

Here is the interesting thing.

It used to be, that every time another team kicked off to us, I would either 1, hold my breath for no fumbles or 2 (more recently) just fast-forward if I could until the offense came out.

Now, this kid actually makes punts and kicks more exciting! I can't wait to watch them now.
