Logan Thomas explained what it’s been like to go from playing quarterback to transitioning to tight end.
“I had to learn a completely different set of ideals, a completely different verbiage, but it’s going very smoothly,” Thomas said, via BuffaloBills.com. “Thankfully going from quarterback to tight end is a lot easier than going from tight end to quarterback.”
Thomas realized that making this move may actually save his pro career, even though it lowered his pride a bit.
“It definitely lowers your pride a little bit,” Thomas said. “You have to be humble about it and take things in from a full-picture perspective because simply, do you want your career to keep lasting? Or do you want it to end? For me, I’ve always had confidence that I could play quarterback but I always knew my body type, athleticism, speed and I could always catch and if something happens, I could potentially play tight end.”
“So far, everything has been going great. I think [the coaches] are great guys, first of all and then I think they are great coaches, as well,” Thomas said. “If you can trust somebody as a person, it gives you a lot better opportunity to trust them as a coach and that’s what I’ve been blessed with.”
