Redskins re-signed QB Jonathan Crompton.

Crompton was waived on Monday as the 'Skins got down to 75 players. He's now back as a practice arm thanks to the release of veteran Chris Cooley. Crompton remains a poor bet to stick on the final roster.

Redskins waived QB Jonathan Crompton.

25-year-old Crompton didn't even get a preseason snap behind Robert Griffin, Rex Grossman, and Kirk Cousins. Crompton had to know this was coming.

Redskins signed Jonathan Crompton, RB Tristan Davis, OT Nevin McCaskill and CB Travon Bellamy to reserve/future contracts.

A fifth-round pick of the Chargers in 2010, Crompton spent all of 2011 on the Redskins' practice squad. Depending on which direction Washington goes at quarterback this offseason, Crompton could be in the running for the team's third-string job in 2012. Amongst the Vikings' final cuts, Davis worked out for the Panthers in November, but wasn't signed. A journeyman, McCaskill is unlikely to compete for a roster spot.

Redskins signed QB Jonathan Crompton to the practice squad.

Crompton has NFL-caliber physical tools, but he's never been able to put it together mentally. Washington is a good landing spot, with only Rex Grossman and John Beck ahead of Crompton. Keep an eye out in deep Dynasty leagues.

Bucs waived or released QB Jonathan Crompton, WR Maurice Price, C Matt Allen, OT Will Barker, OT Cory Brandon, G Thomas Claiborne, OG Marc Dile, TE Daniel Hardy, RB Mossis Madu, TE Nathan Overbay, TE Ryan Purvis, and K Jacob Rogers.

Crompton appeared in only one preseason game, completing 12-of-22 passes for 149 yards in the finale. The Tennessee product is running out of NFL chances.

Bucs signed QB Jonathan Crompton, formerly of the Patriots.

He's likely no more than a camp arm behind Joshes Freeman and Johnson and third-stringer Rudy Carpenter, whom the Bucs are said to be high on. Crompton was a good-looking prospect after a big senior year at Tennessee, but two quality organizations (San Diego, New England) have already given up on him.

Patriots waived QB Jonathan Crompton.

A fifth-round pick by the Chargers last year, Crompton was signed to a reserve/future contract in January. It didn't take Ryan Mallett long to bypass him on the Patriots depth chart.
Mon, Aug 1, 2011 06:33:00 PM

Patriots signed QB Jonathan Crompton, WRs Darnell Jenkins and Buddy Farnham, TE Carson Butler, DT Marlon Favorite, CB Thad Turner and S Ross Ventrone to reserve/future contracts.

A fifth-round pick, Crompton was released from the Chargers' practice squad just before the season and wound up signing with the Patriots in early November. He's the only interesting name on this list.

Jets worked out free agent QB Jonathan Crompton on Thursday.

The Chargers' fifth-rounder proved not ready for NFL action in the preseason. He's a candidate for the Jets' practice squad.
Thu, Oct 21, 2010 05:28:00 PM

Chargers released QB Jonathan Crompton from their practice squad.

According to San Diego Union-Trib, Crompton "is not ready to play in the NFL." The one-year wonder at Tennessee picked up a lot of "sleeper" steam heading into April's draft, but he's no longer worth a deep Dynasty league roster spot.
Tue, Sep 7, 2010 08:39:00 PM

Chargers waived QB Jonathan Crompton.

Crompton became a hot name leading up to the draft, so it's a bit surprising that the Chargers are exposing him to waivers. With Billy Volek set to become a free agent in 2011, the Chargers are apparently ready to look elsewhere for Philip Rivers' long-term No. 2. Quarterback-needy teams like the Bills should be willing to kick the tires here. If they don't, Crompton will likely be re-signed to San Diego's practice squad.
Sat, Sep 4, 2010 02:58:00 PM

Chargers signed QB Jonathan Crompton to a four-year contract worth up to $2.675 million.

One of the biggest sleepers in April's draft, Crompton flourished down the stretch of his senior year under Lane Kiffin at Tennessee, excelling in a pro-style offense. Crompton projects as Billy Volek's eventual replacement behind Philip Rivers, assuming the Chargers don't Whitehurst him out of town.

Fifth-round pick Jonathan Crompton will be the Chargers' third quarterback.

Crompton will play behind backup Billy Volek this year. Volek becomes a free agent after the season, giving Crompton a shot to move up if he develops.

Chargers selected Tennessee QB Jonathan Crompton with the No. 168 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Though Crompton's body of work during a five-year stay in Knoxville was unimpressive overall, he took off in Lane Kiffin's pro-style scheme as a fifth-year senior, posting a 22:6 TD-to-INT ratio in the Vols' last ten games and taking just 12 sacks all regular season. We were so impressed with Crompton during the stretch run that we rated him the No. 5 overall QB in this draft, while some legit scouting services had him even higher. In San Diego, he'll vie to be the next Charlie Whitehurst, or perhaps take over Billy Volek's backup job in 2011.
