Contract details:

A tweet floated around last night showing screenshots from Detroit Lions TE Logan Thomas' wife's instagram account. It showed Thomas scoring a touchdown at FedEx Field last season. She said you'll be seeing that a lot more this season, but with Thomas in a Redskins uniform.

John Keim has confirmed that the Redskins will be signing former Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas. Terms of the deal haven't been disclosed yet.

Thomas entered the NFL as a QB when the Cardinals drafted him in the 4th round in 2014. He bounced around several teams before signing with the Lions in 2016 and converting to tight end. He didn't get playing time at the position until a year later with the Bill's. He found his way back with the Lions last year where he had his most productive season at TE.

The Redskins have a big need at TE, but this signing doesn't stop them from doing anything else in free agency. Thomas joins Hale Hentges, Jeremy Sprinkle, and Caleb Wilson on a team that just lost Jordan Reed(released) and Vernon Davis(retired).
