Former Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas signs 3-year extension with Washington

No one deserves NFL security more than Thomas.

NFL: Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Football Team began training camp with some big news. Not only did Washington sign defensive tackle Jonathan Allen to a lucrative four-year contract extension, but the Football Team also signed former Virginia Tech star Logan Thomas to a new extension.

Thomas’ new deal is a three-year extension worth up to $24 million with $10 million in guaranteed money.

This was a smart deal for Washington. Thomas had a breakout season in 2020 at 29-years-old and another strong season in 2021 would have given him a favorable market in 2022.

Thomas, who moved to tight end in 2016, caught 72 passes and six touchdowns in 2020. The former record-setting quarterback at Virginia Tech is now under contract with the Football Team for four more seasons.

You root for the good guys. Thomas is a good guy. You often wonder how much money Thomas would’ve made had he played tight end during his career at Virginia Tech. VT’s recruiting failures during that period led Thomas to quarterback — where he was good. But, it’s clear to see he should’ve been a tight end the entire time.

Congratulations to Logan Thomas, an all-time Hokie.
