The Raiders waived Thompson on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Thompson joined the Raiders on Aug. 12 after being let go by the Seahawks in April. He registered six carries for 28 yards in two preseason games. The 2019 sixth-round pick out of Utah State will look for opportunities elsewhere once he clears waivers.

Finds work in Las Vegas

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-12

Thompson signed with the Raiders on Saturday.

Thompson was let go by Seattle ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft and has been a free agent since. However, the 2019 sixth-round pick becomes the second running back signed by the Raiders this week, as they continue to deal with the absence of Josh Jacobs, who hasn't reported to training camp amid a contract dispute with Las Vegas. Thompson totaled 64 rushing attempts for 225 yards and two scores across his first two NFL seasons (2019 and 2020) with Kansas City but hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since.

Let go by Seattle

Seattle waived Thompson on Monday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Thompson was one of numerous cuts Monday, as the Seahawks cut down their roster ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft. The practice-squad running back impressed during limited preseason action last year and was signed to a reserve/future contract in January, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him land another job this spring or summer.

Remains in Seattle

Seattle signed Thompson to a reserve/future contract Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Thompson earned a practice-squad contract after failing to make the Seahawks' initial 53-man roster, but he didn't make any appearances during the 2022 campaign. The Utah State product impressed during limited preseason action, and with his new contract, he'll have a chance to build off what he did with Seattle this year throughout the upcoming offseason.
