The Redskins have signed a tight end.
Nope, it's not that one you're thinking of. And nah, it's not the guy you're now thinking of, either.
However, Washington has made an addition at what is one of the weakest places on the roster by agreeing to terms with former Lion Logan Thomas. The move was first brought up by Thomas' wife on her Instagram story late Wednesday night. If that isn't the most 2020 sentence ever, it's close.
Thomas was actually a quarterback at Virginia Tech and stayed under center for the first few seasons of his NFL career before switching positions in 2016. For his career, he has 35 catches (two more than Jeremy Sprinkle) for 317 yards and two scores — one of which came at FedEx Field last year.
The 28-year-old is coming off of his most productive campaign, though his numbers were still quite modest (16 grabs in 16 contests). However, it'll be interesting to see if the 6-foot-6 target can continue to develop at a spot he just recently started lining up at.
However, there's no way Thomas will be the last tight end the Redskins add this offseason. There are more established free agents available, plus they'll have the draft next month. It'll be paramount for Ron Rivera and Kyle Smith to find more there.
Regardless, they've signed some help. It's not the help anyone expected, and it's questionable how much help it'll end up being, but it's help nonetheless.
