Converting from quarterback to tight end has worked out well for Logan Thomas. 

The Washington Football Team rewarded Thomas' breakout performance with a reported three-year extension Tuesday, according to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. The Washington Post's Nicki Jhabvala reported that the extension is valued at about $24 million. 

Thomas made $1.2 million last season.

Thomas excelled in his first year with Washington. After bouncing around the NFL for years, Thomas got an opportunity to start for Washington and didn't look back. He hauled in 72 catches for 670 yards and six touchdowns with the club in 2020. It was a big step up for Thomas, who had 35 career catches prior to signing with Washington.
