Logan Stenberg Cut By Chicago Bears- Former James Clemens Offensive Lineman Looking For More NFL Playtime

CHICAGO, ILL.- He had only been with the team for about a month, but Logan Stenberg did not make the 53-player roster limit and thus cut by the NFL’s Chicago Bears.

The former James Clemens star offensive lineman and who played at Kentucky, came to the Bears from the Detroit Lions via waivers after the Lions chose to part ways with the 6-foot-6, 325-pound tackle earlier this year. Stenberg was a fourth-round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Lions, subsequently signing him to a four-year deal. During his stay with the Lions, Stenberg, who was once called by a Lions scout, “Meanest pick in the draft,” played in 25 games with four starts to his credit, all of which came in the 2022 season.

Stenberg was plagued by a variety of injuries in his first two seasons with Detroit. He was a three-year starter at Kentucky where he earned the nickname “Mr. Nasty” for his stern play on the line and playing through each play until the end. He was noted as one of the most physical offensive linemen in college football.

His path to the NFL began at age five when he joined a local youth football league. Due to his large size, he was always forced to play up in weight divisions with usually older boys. Stenberg stated playing with the older players actually prepared him for what became an elite future.

Stenberg was once quoted, “My body is my business and I will always have modest activities in my life as I understand my career as a professional athlete will be much shorter than most people’s careers.” He was always a lover of the outdoors hunting and fishing on his parents’ 150-acre farm located just over the border in Tennessee within a short drive from Madison.

He’s currently attempting to a secure a spot on another team’s player roster for the 2023 NFL season.
