Ian Logan (born August 19, 1982) is a former professional Canadian football safety. He most recently played for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the Canadian Football League. He was signed by the Blue Bombers as an undrafted free agent in 2005. He played CIS football at Wilfrid Laurier.

College careerEdit

Logan played for the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks. He was an Ontario University Athletics All-Star for three straight seasons (2003 through 2005) and was named to the CIS First All-Canadian Team in 2004 and 2005. [1]

Professional careerEdit

The 2006 season saw Logan appearing in 14 regular season games for the Blue & Gold. He made his CFL debut in the team’s regular season opener versus the Montreal Alouettes. He finished the regular season with one defensive tackle and five special teams tackles. He also dressed for the team’s Eastern Semifinal Championship loss to the Toronto Argonauts at Rogers Centre.

Logan blossomed in his second season during 2007. He dressed for 15 regular season games including four starts at corner. He finished the regular season with 16 defensive tackles, three special teams tackles, two pass knockdowns and two interception returns for 16 yards. His two INTs ranked second among Bomber defenders.

For the 2008 season, Logan won the starting spot at safety after week 7. He then went on to start the next 11 regular season games he dressed for. He also started at safety for the East semi-final versus Edmonton. He finished the campaign with 38 defensive tackles, 19 special teams tackles—second most on the team—, two sacks, and a tackle for loss.

The 2009 season was Logan’s first full season as a CFL starter and he did not disappoint. Logan started 16 games at safety for the Blue and Gold (missed week eight and nine). He finished with 44 defensive tackles, four interceptions and also chipped in on special teams, making 13 tackles on that unit. He made seven tackles on July 19, 2009 at Hamilton (25-13 L).

Logan was part of the self-titled "Swaggerville" defence that led the Bombers to their first division win during the 2011 Winnipeg Blue Bombers season. That year he was named to the east division all-star team for the first time and his first ever CFL All-Star team a short time later.[2][3] When asked what the award meant Logan said that "I was undrafted, so it's a great story going from undrafted to a CFL all-star."[4]

Logan was released by the Blue Bombers on March 26, 2013.[5] He announced his retirement on May 27, 2013.[6]
