Cardinals wise to put Logan Thomas’ job security on notice

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images It would be fair to say that Arizona Cardinals quarterback Logan Thomas’ job security just isn’t quite as secure as it used to be. The raw, second-year developmental project from out of Virginia Tech is without question a work in progress. And the progress of Thomas’ NFL education – if you can call it that – is questionable, at best. That would...
