The Dolphins didn’t keep Josh Freeman or McLeod Bethel-Thompson on their 53-man roster, but they won’t be going with just two quarterbacks to start the season.
The team has claimed Logan Thomas a day after he was waived by the Cardinals. The corresponding move to keep the roster at 53 players has not yet been announced.
Thomas was a fourth-round pick in Arizona last season, but his chances of sticking for a second year with the Cardinals all but evaporated when the team struck a deal with the Eagles to acquire Matt Barkley. Thomas completed one of the nine passes he threw in two appearances with the Cardinals last season and made it count as the throw went for an 81-yard touchdown.
Coming out of Virginia Tech, Thomas was seen as a talented but raw prospect at quarterback. That appeared to be an accurate assessment during his appearances last year and the Cardinals’ decision to move on leaves the Dolphins to see if they can mold him into something more useful at the NFL level.
