In addition to claiming Spencer Havner off waivers, the Lions have also claimed Stefan Logan, formerly of the Pittsburgh Steelers. To make room on the roster, linebacker Rocky Boiman was released.
Logan is a return specialist. His position is technically wide receiver, but he is being brought in to be a returner, as he set the Steelers single-season record for kick return yards a year ago.
Boiman was just signed last week after DeAndre Levy injured his groin. Whether or not letting him go means Levy is expected to be ready to play next Sunday is unclear, but the Lions had seven linebackers on the roster, giving them the flexibility to let go of Boiman.
