On Monday, Washington agreed to a four-year deal with defensive tackle Jonathan Allen.
Thomas, who was a star quarterback at Virginia Tech, transitioned to tight end in 2016. He spent time with the Detroit Lions and Buffalo Bills before signing a two-year contract with Washington in March 2020.
He would proceed to have a breakout season in 2020, recording 72 receptions for 670 yards and six touchdowns as Washington’s No. 1 tight end.
Two of the big offseason priorities for the WFT were to get deals done with Allen and Thomas. Washington’s front office was proactive and reached deals with each key starter just before training camp.
Now, the team can turn its full attention to the 2021 season.
