Brian Logan became the second former Brigham Young Cougars football player to join the Canadian Football League (CFL). The Deseret News is reporting that the 5'6" cornerback has signed a free agent contract with the Edmonton Eskimos. Jadon Wagner joined the Hamilton Tiger-Cats as that team's 6th round draft pick last Sunday.
Logan has his work cut out for himself. The Eskimos also signed David Pittman, a 2006 Baltimore Ravens draft pick, and the Eskimos expect Pittman to compete for a starting position. The Eskimos' press release does not indicate such lofty expectations, or any expectations for that matter, for Logan.
The CFL also presents a challenge with wider fields, larger end zones, and different pass defense strategies that Logan will have to learn.
Logan was a defensive leader for BYU in 2010 finishing 3rd in tackles with 51 and tied for second in interceptions and pass break ups with two and seven, respectively.
Former BYU cornerback Omarr Morgan just completed a very successful CFL career that included a year with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2007.
