The Detroit Lions and offensive lineman Logan Stenberg have agreed to terms on a deal.
Stenberg was drafted in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Shoring up the offensive line of the Lions to help protect the aging Matthew Stafford, the 6-foot-6, 320-pound guard has a bright career ahead of him.
That said, the news of his contract was first brought to the public by JL Sports, Stenberg’s agency.
They noted that the contract will be for four years, but nothing else about the deal has yet to be released. For the NFL, guaranteed money continues to be a big factor so those details should be disclosed in the near future as teams work to finalize their salary caps.
A three-year starter with the Wildcats, Stenberg will be one of many competing for a starting spot in the Motor City. However, if his ability to protect runners translates at all to the next level, he should be just fine in the NFL.
Stenberg, who also had interest from the Buffalo Bills, should’ve been drafted prior to the fourth round. After a terrific Senior Bowl on the South roster, Stenberg could’ve easily been a third-round pick but may have dropped due to his weight or versatility.
Nonetheless, as long as he can stay down in pass protection and continue his mauling ways as a run blocker, the huge lineman should be able to step up as a key piece of the Lions’ future.
Selected 41 picks after dynamic quarterback Lynn Bowden Jr., the Kentucky duo were the only two drafted from the Belk Bowl-winning Wildcats. Stenberg was taken with the 121 pick in the draft.
