The Lions signed former Buffalo Bills tight end Logan Thomas on Thursday.

Allen Park — The Detroit Lions have signed tight end Logan Thomas.

Detroit made the move Thursday, adding depth at a position recently bolstered by the addition of Jesse James.

Thomas made 19 catches for 144 yards and a touchdown over the previous two seasons with the Buffalo Bills.

He was drafted as a quarterback in the fourth round by Arizona out of Virginia Tech five years ago. Thomas was 1 of 9 and had an 81-yard touchdown pass as a rookie with the Cardinals in 2014. He was on the Lions' practice squad briefly in 2016 before being signed by the Bills.
