Thompson signed with the Bengals' practice squad Tuesday.
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.
Thompson was waived from Seattle's practice squad, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Thompson joined Seattle less than a week ago, but the team preferred to add practice-squad depth at defensive tackle in Bryan Mone instead.
The Seahawks signed Thompson to the practice squad Thursday, per the NFL's official transactions report.
Thompson recently parted ways with Kansas City's practice squad, and he'll now look to make the most of his opportunity in Seattle. The undrafted rookie out of Toledo flashed during the preseason with the Chiefs, notching 12 catches for 108 yards.
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.
