Former Hokies QB Tyrod Taylor finds fellow Virginia Tech alum for Buffalo Bills touchdown

With wide receiver Jordan Matthews and tight end Charles Clay both injured, the Buffalo Bills are short on offensive weapons in the passing game. So quarterback Tyrod Taylor looked for a familiar target Sunday.

Taylor, who played quarterback for Virginia Tech from 2007-10, found another former member of the Hokies, wide receiver Logan Thomas, for a 22-yard touchdown versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

The last time that happened, Taylor and Thomas were wearing Virginia Tech jerseys against Wake Forest seven years ago.

Apparently, the Taylor-Thomas connection has been very special for the wide receiver. Thomas played quarterback at Virginia Tech, becoming the starter once Taylor left, but he caught one touchdown for the Hokies – the score he recorded on a pass from Taylor versus Wake Forest.

Thomas began his NFL career as a quarterback as well, but he wasn’t able to earn a backup job anywhere and converted to receiver. His touchdown Sunday was Thomas’ first in the NFL.
