Logan Thomas – Commanders TE

The arrival of Eric Bieniemy comes with potential. It could also see big changes to the offensive system and playing personnel depending on the new appointment’s recommendations.

Bieniemy has been on a winning franchise over the last decade and has two Super Bowls to his name. Something that he can hopefully install into the Washington Commanders ahead of a crucial third campaign for head coach Ron Rivera.

One of the biggest features of the Kansas City Chiefs offense under Bieniemy and Andy Reid was tight-end involvement. This could mean big things upcoming for Logan Thomas if he firmly establishes himself as part of the team’s plans in 2023.

Thomas has been solid if not spectacular throughout his time in Washington. Injuries have stalled his development to a certain extent, but the jury is still out regarding what role he might have with Bieniemy leading the charge.

The former quarterback needs to impress, and quickly. Otherwise, he could be sacrificed for someone with more proven credentials in free agency or a talented prospect from the college ranks.

Releasing Thomas has $5.17 million in savings attached with a $3.5 million dead-cap figure. Therefore, it’s essential for the player to make his presence felt immediately if he makes it to OTAs.
