Professional career

Pittsburgh Steelers

Legursky signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in April 28, 2008. He was released on June 28 but re-signed the following day. Legursky was released by the team during final cuts on August 30, but re-signed to the team's practice squad on October 1 after guard Kendall Simmons was placed on injured reserve.

Legursky replaced Pouncey during the Steelers's 24-19 AFC Championship Game win on January 23, 2011. Legursky started his very first game at center in Super Bowl XLV due to Pro Bowl rookie Maurkice Pouncey's ankle injury. Although Legursky fumbled a snap to quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on the goal line resulting in a Jets safety, he helped RB Rashard Mendenhall run for a playoff career-high 121 yards and one touchdown.[1] The Steelers lost to the Green Bay Packers 31-25 in Super Bowl XLV. After not being re-signed by the Steelers after the 2010-2011 season, Legursky became an unrestricted free agent.

Buffalo Bills

On June 5, 2013, Legursky signed with the Buffalo Bills.[2]

San Diego Chargers

On September 11, 2014, Legursky signed with the San Diego Chargers. He replaced Nick Hardwick, who had been injured and out for the rest of the season.[3]

Second stint with Pittsburgh Steelers

On August 25, 2015, it was announced that the Pittsburgh Steelers had re-signed Legursky.[4] He was released on September 5, 2015 but re-signed the next day following the placement of Maurkice Pouncey on the Injured Reserve/Designated for Return list.
