Three Lions who could excel on special teams

Special teams should never be ignored. A good special teams player can hold onto a job for a long time. Here are three (not including Jason Hanson) who could excel at special teams.

1. John Wendling, not exactly a surprise. His special teams play has kept him around although he’s starting to pick up more notice at the safety position too.

2. They don’t call Ronnell Lewis the Hammer for no reason. Apparently at Oklahoma he knocked a guy cold on a special teams play. It’s the reason this rookie defensive end is likely to make the roster.

3. Stefan Logan returns kicks, but is also strong on special teams coverage units. On top of that he can run the ball and line up as a receiver. It’s his multidimensional ability that could help him maintain a roster spot. It’s not a certainty, although he comes in cheap at $615,000 for this season.
