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.
Logan Thomas' contract is worth $24M over three years and should net him about $10M in guaranatees, according to @MikeGarafolo.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) July 27, 2021
This is a very reasonable deal. #WashingtonFootball fans should be very happy with this contract.
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.
