Thompson (shoulder) was waived by the Seahawks on Tuesday due to a failed physical, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports. It was previously reported that Thompson was fully healthy following his release, but it turns out the team was unable to give him a clean bill of health. The move will free up $2.13 million in cap space for the Seahawks. The 25-year-old only saw action in six games in 2019 due to the injury, and Thompson will be free to sign with any team if he goes unclaimed by Wednesday's 4:00 PM ET deadline.
Thompson (shoulder) will be released by the Seahawks, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports. Per Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune, the move will free up $2.13 million in salary cap space for Seattle. Meanwhile, Anderson notes that the free safety, who landed on IR last October due to a torn shoulder labrum, is now reportedly healthy. Prior to his injury, the 25-year-old recorded 19 tackles and two picks in six games.
Thompson (shoulder) recorded 19 tackles, two pass breakups and two interceptions over six regular-season games in 2019 before landing on injured reserve in late October. Thompson entered the season as the replacement for free safety Earl Thomas, who left for the Ravens in free agency. Unfortunately, Thompson's season was cut short when he was shut down midseason after undergoing surgery for a torn labrum. Thompson, who will turn 25 years old later in January, started all six games before the injury. He's considered a ball hawk in coverage, but his aggressiveness came with some hiccups that put his starting job in jeopardy before the injury. He has one year remaining on his rookie contract, but Thompson likely won't have a starting role waiting for him in 2020, as the emergence of Quandre Diggs will likely push him to a reserve role.
Thompson made seven tackles (three solo) and nabbed an interception in Sunday's 32-28 win over Cleveland. It was Thompson's second consecutive game recording an interception, as he notched one of three interceptions thrown by Baker Mayfield in the game. The only negative for Thompson is that he recorded a season-low snap total, participating in just 52 of 69 plays on defense. The 24-year-old safety will draw a tough matchup against the Ravens in Week 7.
Thompson finished Thursday's 30-29 win over the Rams with three tackles and an interception. Thompson's fourth-quarter interception was originally ruled an incomplete pass, but a Seattle challenge resulted in the play being overturned after officials deemed the ball did not hit the ground. It was Thompson's first INT of the season and came in a game that saw the 24-year-old free safety play every snap on defense (72)..
