Raiders Claim WR Kenbrell Thompkins Off Waivers From Patriots

Albert Breer of the NFL Network is reporting that the Raiders have claimed WR Kenbrell Thompkins off of waivers from the Patriots.

Thompkins, 26, signed with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati last year. He was able to make the Patriots 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but New England surprisingly cut him last week.

Oakland could really use some help at receiver and can offer him plenty of opportunity as soon as he’s comfortable with their offensive system.

Last year, Thompkins caught 32 passes for 466 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
