Big changes today for former Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas:
In their signing announcement, the Lions said that they are converting Thomas to tight end. The move comes as a bit of a surprise considering that Thomas is in his third professional season and has been exclusively marketing himself as a QB. With just two games and nine attempted passes on his resume, Thomas is apparently looking to shake things up.
Since being taken in the fourth round of the 2014 draft by the Cardinals, Thomas has bounced around the league a bit. Arizona cut him in September 2015, leading him to stints with the Dolphins and Giants. At 6’6″ and 248 pounds, Thomas may have more success as a pass-catcher.
The Lions had a vacancy on the ten-man practice squad, so they will not have to release anyone to accommodate Thomas. Here is the rundown of their p-squad, courtesy of Roster Resource:
- WR Jace Billingsley
- WR Corey Fuller
- WR T.J. Jones
- WR Jay Lee
- TE Logan Thomas
- G Brandon Thomas
- G/T Matt Rotheram
- ILB Brandon Chubb
- OLB Steve Longa
- CB Alex Carter
