The Bills signed wide receiver Deonte Thompson to a one-year contract, according to a team announcement. The deal marks Thompson’s third stint in Buffalo.
Before Robert Foster went off for 105 yards against the Jets on Sunday, Thompson was the Bills’ most recent 100-yard receiver. Foster’s performance snapped a 19-game streak without a 100-yard performance dating back to when Thompson pulled it off on Oct. 22, 2017.
Thompson was cut by the Cowboys last week and became a free agent after clearing waivers. The Bills made a play to keep Thompson in the offseason, so they’re undoubtedly happy to have him back in the fold.
Thompson spent time with the Bills and Bears last year. Between the two clubs, he turned in the best season of his career with 38 grabs for 555 yards and two touchdowns. The Broncos also expressed interest in him in the offseason before he hooked on with Jerry Jones & Co.
