JUST IN: Detroit Lions sign Logan Thomas as a TE

According to reports, the Detroit Lions have signed former quarterback Logan Thomas as a tight end and have placed him on their practice squad. In a corresponding move, the team has released LB Brandon Chubb.

Thomas, who was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals as a quarterback in the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, played in two games as a rookie (1-for-9 passing for 81 yards and a touchdown). Since then he has played with the Miami Dolphins in 2015, mostly on their practice squad and with the New York Giants this season, also as a practice squad player.

As noted above, the Lions are looking to convert Thomas, who is 6’6″ and 250 pounds, into a tight end. There is no question about it that he has the size and athleticism to play the position and it will be interesting to see how he develops.

Thomas ran a 4.54 40-yard dash time at the NFL combine in 2014.
