The Jets will sign wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins from their practice squad to their active roster, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Thompkins will give the Jets another wide receiver after Quincy Enunwa was hit with a four-game suspension.
Thompkins, 26, stuck with the Patriots in 2013 after being signed as an undrafted free agent, impressing at times during his rookie campaign. He caught 32 passes for 466 yards and four touchdowns in eight starts last season, but wasn’t a major part of New England’s passing attack in early 2014, and was cut just a few weeks into the season. The Raiders then acted quickly to claim him. In 12 games for Oakland, Thompkins caught 15 passes for 209 yards. However, the Raiders cut Thompkins loose in late August.
