Returner Stefan Logan proves his worth
Perhaps lost in the Lions’ 2-9 record is the Herculean effort of return specialist Stefan Logan.
In Thursday’s loss to the Patriots, Logan averagd nearly 28 yards per kickoff return. Plus he notched a tackle on a Lions’ kickoff.
Returns were an issue all last season. The roster was so shaky that the Lions couldn’t afford to have a returner who was just a returner. That changed a bit this season so Logan was claimed off waivers on Sept. 6. And actually he is more than a returner. He plays on all special teams units and has lined up at wide receiver.
It was another good move by Mayhew.
When he returned a punt 71 yards against the Redskins a few weeks ago, he became the first Lion in franchise history to return a 100-yard kickoff and a punt return for at least 70 yards.
No wonder he’s can be a forgotten man. He’s only 5-foot-6 and 180 pounds.
