Safety Mike Logan (31) returns an intercepted pass

The Packers have invited Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Logan to visit Green Bay this week, according to reports. The Packers have shown strong interest in Logan and Cincinnati safety Mark Roman in the past week.

Logan started for the Steelers at strong safety last year. He visited with the Packers on March 9. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that he will be visiting Green Bay, along with his wife, this week.

The 6-foot-1, 212-pound Logan can play both safety positions, which would create flexibility with Pro Bowl safety Darren Sharper in Green Bay’s secondary.

Logan, 29, started a career-high 15 games last season. He was among the Steelers' leaders with a career-best 93 tackles, including 75 solo. He also broke up five passes. He was signed by the Steelers as a free agent from Jacksonville in 2001. Despite the fact they they are only about $100,000 under the salary cap, the Steelers are trying to re-sign Logan.

The Packers also have shown interest in free safety Mark Roman. The unrestricted free agent from Cincinnati visited Green Bay last week and has been sitting tight in Baton Rouge, La. Roman reportedly has not made visits to any other teams, besides Green Bay and Chicago, and the Bengals have not offered him a contract.
