Steelers Bring Back Center Doug Legursky

Pittsburgh Steelers v Tennessee Titans

The Steelers has brought back one of its pieces from it’s 2010 Super Bowl squad, inking center Doug Legursky.

The team needs depth to help out after losing center Maurkice Pouncey during their win over the Packers at home on S

It’s a good signing for the team, as Legursky started 17 games for the Steelers from 2009 to ’12, including their Super Bowl XLV loss in Dallas.

All-Pro Pouncey had surgery to repair a broken bone in his ankle/lower leg area, it’s not known if he’s going to be able to come back in 2015 or not.

Receiver David Nelson was placed on injured reserve in the corresponding move.

  1. Legursky is well beyond his prime, causing some writers to question this move. However, he knows the players, the playbook, and Ben R., and more important, the coaches know him. He is seen as a backup center to Cody Wallace, but Legursky also can play guard. Given that combination, this insurance move makes sense.
