Seattle also signed WR Cody White and OT Greg Eiland to their practice squad and cut QB Holton Ahlers in a corresponding move. 

Thompson, 27, wound up going undrafted out of Toledo following the 2019 NFL Draft. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Chiefs, but was among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

Kansas City later signed Thompson to their practice squad before releasing him in October. He had a brief stint on the Seahawks’ taxi squad before the Bengals added him to their practice squad in November. 

Cincinnati cut Thompson in January and he quickly returned to the Seahawks. Seattle signed him to a futures deal for the 2020 season. He’s been with the team ever since, spending most of the season on the practice squad and signing futures deals each of the past two seasons. 

Seattle re-signed Thompson as a free agent in April. 

For his career, Thompson has appeared in eight games for the Seahawks and recorded one tackle and one fumble recovery. He has not been targeted on offense yet.
