The Redskins waived Thompson (undisclosed) with an injury settlement Saturday, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.
Thompson has avoided spending the entire season on the Redskins' IR by reaching an injury settlement. He will now be free to look for a new opportunity once his health allows it.
Thompson signed with the Redskins on Sunday.
Thompson was previously with Indianapolis before arriving in Washington. He's still a long shot to make the active roster, but Thompson has a chance to stick around if he can standout during the team's remaining preseason games.
