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. 

The Chiefs signed Thompson to a contract soon after. 

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.

In 2020, Thompson has appeared in eight games for the Chiefs and recorded 13 tackles and no interceptions.
