Thompson signed a reserve/future contract with the Seahawks on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Analysis: The 24-year-old spent a week on Seattle's practice squad in the middle of the season and then rejoined the unit prior to the divisional-round loss in Green Bay. Thompson went undrafted out of Toledo in the spring and is still looking to make his NFL debut.
Thompson signed with the Seahawks' practice squad Wednesday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of Toledo spent a week on Seattle's practice roster earlier in the season, but the Seahawks could use depth again since Malik Turner (concussion) and Jaron Brown (knee) are battling injuries. If Thompson's promoted before Sunday's divisional-round matchup versus the Packers, he'll likely work in a special-teams role.
Thompson signed with the Bengals' practice squad Tuesday.
Analysis: Thompson was a highly productive player at Toledo, marking 10 touchdowns in his final collegiate season. He's a quick player with 4.03-second shuttle time but doesn't stretch the field, clocking in at a 4.57 40-yard dash. With fading optimism about A.J. Green's (ankle) return and Auden Tate in concussion protocol, Thompson may be promoted to the 53-man roster before Sunday's matchup against the Steelers.
The Chiefs waived Thompson on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: The Chiefs had a couple depth receiving roles up for grabs, but Thompson was competing with more than a handful of other pass-catchers for the opportunity. Ultimately, the undrafted rookie out of Toledo was unable to show enough during camp for the job. He remains a candidate for the team's practice sqaud should he clear waivers.
