Logan Thomas agrees to terms with Cardinals


The Cardinals have Carson Palmer back for another season as their quarterback, but they looked ahead to the future during the draft and selected Logan Thomas in the fourth round to give them an option for the future.

On Wednesday, they announced that Thomas has agreed to his four-year rookie contract with the team. The Cardinals also announced that sixth-round wide receiver Walter Powell has signed, leaving only first-round safety Deone Bucannon unsigned with rookie minicamp starting on Friday.

Thomas threw for 53 touchdowns and 39 interceptions during his time at Virginia Tech, which makes for a fairly good representation of his overall accuracy issues. The 6-6 Thomas said he’s already worked to correct some of the problems and rejects the notion that he’s a project.

“I think I’m a lot more ready than people think,” Thomas said, via ESPN.com. “I think people labeled me as a project simply off stats, which I can understand what they see, what they think.”

Powell is Murray State’s career leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns, but may have a hard time finding playing time in a receiving corps that includes Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, Ted Ginn and third-round pick John Brown.

  1. Take a flyer on a guy that clearly has the tools and put him with some of the best QB gurus in the league. It’s a 50/50 proposition but the upside is potentially huge.

  2. It’s safe to say he couldn’t do worse they other of the qb’s in recent Cardinal history. Lindley,Skelton, Kolb, Leinert. Yikes!

  3. Anyone who thinks this guy will be in the league longer than 3 years with the best qb coaching possible is really confused and needs to watch some vt games from last season.

  4. Watched a several VT games over the last couple of years and Mr. Thomas didn’t have much to work with in terms of pass catchers. This could be a steal for the Cards if he takes to the coaching out there.

  5. Dude should just start practicing at TE already. He was awful a lot of the time at VT and he won’t do better playing against tougher competition.

  6. Virginia Tech at large was much more awful than his actual play. Most drops in the nation. He lost all of his talent after his first year really playing the position. He also had 3 offensive coordinators over 4 seasons.

    He’s a sore spot for Hokie fans that want to slam him and an easy, albeit incorrect, target for pundits not willing to factor the circumstances of his tenure.

    He has every chance of succeeding in Arizona under Bruce Arians.

    Mel Kiper and other draft pundits that are way more concerned with getting the top 32 of their list correct than measuring any form of long term success in the pros are responsible for most of the vitriol.

    The Cardinals got a good, late round pick as a result.
