Chiefs Signing S Tedric Thompson


Terez A. Paylor reports that the Chiefs have agreed to terms on a contract with free-agent S Tedric Thompson

Thompson, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2017. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $3.07 million contract when Seattle released him in March. 

Seattle had earlier given Thompson permission to seek a trade but apparently found no takers. Thompson lost his starting job last season after the Seahawks traded for S Quandre Diggs

Thompson also tore his labrum last season, which could have adversely affected his trade market.

In 2019, Thompson appeared in six games for the Seahawks and recorded 19 tackles, two interceptions and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 84 safety receiver out of 86 qualifying players.

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
