Steelers sign Lee

The Steelers signed defensive end Logan Lee, one of the team's sixth-round draft picks, to a four-year contract. Lee, who played at Iowa, was selected with the 178th overall pick.

Lee played in 43 games, starting 41 of them, at Iowa. He has 158 career tackles, including 58 solo stops, 18.5 tackles for a loss, nine sacks and seven passes defensed.

Lee has the ability to play multiple positions on the defensive line and is willing to do whatever is asked of him.

"Wherever they ask me is where I see myself," said Lee.

Lee started 13 games at defensive tackle in 2023, finishing the season with 55 tackles, 19 of them solo stops. He had five and a half tackles for a loss, three sacks, three pass breakups, one pressure and one block kick.

Lee had a career-high 10 tackles, with two and a half tackles for a loss, and a career high two sacks in a win over Purdue last season.

He was named honorable mention All-Big Ten by league coaches and media and Phil Steele third-team All-Big Ten.

Lee grew up a Steelers fan, a team he took interest in because one of his close friends was a fan of the black and gold.

"I grew up a huge Steelers fan my whole life," said Lee. "I am beyond blessed.

"I started really getting into the thick of the historical NFL stuff. I just loved the Steel Curtain era stuff. I loved watching Mel Blount slam people on their heads and stuff. I was always a big Steelers fan growing up."
