Compton is somewhat of a fan favorite and co-hosts a popular podcast with (now former) teammate Taylor Lewan, but he hadn’t been contributing much on the field. Signed in late August, Compton played a big role on defense in Week 1 but has since been limited to special teams work. A full-time starter with Washington from 2015-16, Compton missed half of the 2017 season due to injury.
He then signed with Tennessee and played in 12 games in 2018, starting two. He appeared in nine games with the Raiders last year, starting four. He spent this whole offseason as a free agent and didn’t draw a ton of known interest. Now 31 and mostly a special teamer the past few years, he won’t have teams beating down his door now that he’s back on the market.
