Steelers Six From Around The Web – Wednesday July 1st
Steelers running back coach, Kirby Wilson, told the B.C. Lions player personnel director Roy Shivers they can forget about getting running back, Stefan Logan back. “Kirby told me to forget about him,” Shivers said at the Lions training camp Friday. “They like him and they\’ve moved him to slotback. The idea is that they can get him the ball in space and everything. He\’s opening some eyes. The veterans have gravitated toward him because he\’s shown stuff in mini-camps. And they plan to use him as a kick returner, too. Kirby told me, \’You\’re probably not going to get him back.\’ ”
