Steelers trying to upgrade return teams?

According to reports from north of the border the Steelers have plucked a player from the Canadian Football League in an effort to enhance the punt return and kick return units.

Reports are that the Steelers have, or will shortly, sign Stefan Logan who played last season with the Toronto Argonauts B.C. Lions. According to a brief item from Rotoworld, Mr. Logan (nicknamed "Joystick" ~ we're not sure we want to know) "was Canada's most exciting player, averaging a ridiculous 7.3 yards per carry in 2008." However, the understanding Mr. Logan has is that the Steelers are looking at him as a possible return man on kicks and/or punts.

Mr. Logan attended college at the University of South Dakota, and according to information on the official web site of the university, Mr. Logan was a finalist for the Harlon Hill trophy, emblematic of the Player of the Year in Division II (see a promotional brochure outlining Mr. Logan's accomplishments here).

Mr. Logan, who is from Miami, was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2007 by the Miami Dolphins but did not make the team.
