Former Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas has come a long way since leaving Blacksburg after the 2013 season. Thomas shattered many of Virginia Tech’s passing records during his college career before becoming a fourth-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in the 2014 NFL draft.

Things didn’t quite work out for Thomas as a quarterback as he would spend just one season with the Cardinals before he was released in 2015. Over the course of the next two years, Thomas spent time with the Miami Dolphins and the New York Giants before landing with the Detroit Lions in 2016.

That’s when Thomas decided to move to tight end. The Buffalo Bills would sign Thomas off Detroit’s practice squad, where he spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons. He returned to the Lions in 2019 and played in all 16 games for the first time in his NFL career.

In 2020, Thomas signed a two-year deal with the Washington Football Team and immediately became the starter. He would have a breakout season, catching 72 passes for 670 yards and six touchdowns. In July, just before training camp, Washington rewarded Thomas with a three-year contract extension.

On Wednesday, Thomas received another honor, as Washington named him one of the team captains for the 2021 season.

Good things happen to good people.

Thomas still holds Virginia Tech's career record for completions, attempts, yards and touchdown passes.

Congrats, Logan. Hokie Nation will always root for you.
