Thompson was waived by the Packers on Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Thompson spent the final month of last season on Green Bay's practice squad and signed a reserve/future contract at the end of December. The 25-year-old is still looking to make his NFL debut after going undrafted out of Utah in 2017.
Thompson was brought in along with former Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro to help fill the void left by starting strong safety Johnathan Cyprien, who was lost for the season with an ACL tear. An undrafted free agent in 2017, the Utah product was cut by the Patriots prior to the regular season, then worked on practice squads with the Bears and Seahawks throughout the season. Vaccaro figures to have the upper hand heading into competition, but Thompson will look to impress while in camp.
