Thompson has already been signed and released within the last month after the Denver Broncos signed him in late July only to release him this past weekend. To Thompson’s credit, Denver has arguably the most loaded secondary in the entire NFL, so it was going to be tough sledding there to begin with. The Titans now offer him a clearer path to an active roster spot for the 2021 season.
Thompson, who was signed by the K.C. Chiefs last offseason, has had trouble finding a permanent home ever since he was released by the Seattle Seahawks after the 2019 season concluded. Since then, he landed with the Chiefs only to be released last November. The Cleveland Browns signed him shortly thereafter but set him free again by this past January.
Tedric Thompson is now with the Titans as he searches for an opportunity.
During his time with the Chiefs, Thompson appeared in only 8 games and had 13 total tackles for the team, allowing 7 of 8 passes to be completed in coverage, per Pro Football Reference. In the end, Thompson played only 9 percent of all defensive snaps and 10 percent of special teams snaps in ’20 for the Chiefs.
Thompson began his career with the Seahawks as a former fourth round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. After playing part-time as a rotational player on sub packages during his rookie campaign, Pete Carroll elevated him to starter status for the next two years in the Seattle secondary although a shoulder injury prematurely ended his third season in the league. He never had a chance to return to the field for the Seahawks and he’s been searching for opportunities ever since.
