Logan Thomas Presser: “I just want to be somebody Dwayne Haskins is confident in to make a play”

Logan Thomas speaks to the media after today’s practice

Logan Thomas seems to have the inside track to the be the Washington Football Team’s starting tight end this year. He was given a 2-year deal this offseason, and continues his evolution from QB to TE in the NFL. He has become a reliable target for starting QB Dwayne Haskins Jr. in training camp, and coaches and reporters have noted their rapport growing in practice.

Thomas is a big fan of Head Coach Ron Rivera, and says he is a calming presence that commands respect. Offensive Coordinator Scott Turner has been a part of some good offenses for tight ends in Minnesota and Carolina, and Thomas likes that his schemes can make defenses overthink, leading to big mistakes. Tight Ends Coach Pete Hoener is one of the most vocal coaches on the team, but Thomas appreciates what he has done for other TEs, and what he is working to do for this group.

Thomas works every year to become a better tight end, and earn his spot on the team, and in the league. He has improved every year as a tight end since making the switch from QB in 2016. His understanding of what defense are trying to do continues to grow, along with his arsenal of techniques, and his versatility.
