The Chiefs waived Thompson on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
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 squad should he clear waivers.
The Chiefs are expected to sign Thompson as an undrafted free agent, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Thompson played a total of five years with Toledo, where he racked up 48 catches for 647 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. Even though he suffered a broken fibula in 2017, durability shouldn't be a huge concern as he played in a total of 50 games in his college career. He will face an uphill battle trying to nail down a roster spot in 2019.
