Logan Thomas - Former Commanders TE

Logan Thomas was a solid if not spectacular performer last season. But the financial incentive to release the veteran tight end with one year remaining on his deal proved too tempting to ignore.

The Washington Commanders are going in a different direction offensively. Kliff Kingsbury wanted someone he trusted to fill the tight end position, signing Zach Ertz to a one-year deal. This is a short-term solution, but those in power have enough draft picks to potentially scoop a dynamic option for the No. 1 spot long-term if the right opportunity presents itself.

Adam Peters has decided to move forward without Thomas, which is fine. He'll be missed for his dependability and veteran leadership, but there is no sentiment attached to any decisions being made by the new regime.

Thomas stayed healthy last year and demonstrated enough qualities to suggest he has a couple of good years left. It's somewhat surprising to see the former Virginia Tech star still sitting on the free-agent market. Perhaps he's biding his time in pursuit of finding the right fit. Maybe teams are pausing on their intent to approach the player until the 2024 NFL Draft concludes.

Either way, Thomas' future is uncertain for now. He should get another gig elsewhere, but nothing has materialized as yet.
