With just three safeties currently on their roster, the Pittsburgh Steelers desperately wanted to address their depth at the position.
They did so Wednesday, re-signing veteran safety Mike Logan, whom the team had released earlier this offseason, to a one-year deal.
The 6-1, 211-pound Logan is a nine-year NFL veteran who was a second-round draft pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1997. He joined the Steelers as a free agent in 2001.
Logan has played in 75 games in his career with Pittsburgh starting 17. In his nine seasons in the league, he has played in 103 games with 28 starts.
Logan has 208 career tackles, including 138 with the Steelers, with five sacks and four forced fumbles. He also has five interceptions and five fumble recoveries in his career. Logan also has 78 career special teams tackles, including 10 in 2005.
He suffered a knee injury in the Steelers' Super Bowl win over Seattle, but is expected to be ready to return to action by the start of training camp.
The Steelers also signed wide receiver Sean Morey and linebacker Arnold Harrison to one-year deals. Financial terms for both contracts were not released.
