Thompson, 31, is a former fifth-round pick of Washington back in 2013. He was unfortunately waived at the start of the 2014 season, but re-signed to their practice squad soon after.
Washington brought Thompson back on a second-round restricted tender in 2017 before signing him to a two-year extension at the start of the 2017 regular season. From there, he signed on with the Jaguars last May.
In 2020, Thompson appeared in eight games for the Jaguars and rushed for 20 yards on seven carries to go along with 20 receptions for 146 yards receiving and one touchdown.
