Thompson, 27, was signed by the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Temple in 2017. The Giants waived him with a non-football injury in August and he caught on later in the year with the Bears practice squad. 

Chicago signed Thompson to a futures deal for the 2018 season, however, he was waived coming out of the preseason. Thompson was last with the Tampa Bay Vipers of the now-defunct XFL. 

Thompson signed a one-year deal with the Panthers last year. 

In 2020, Thompson appeared in 15 games for the Panthers and caught one pass for seven yards and a touchdown.
