Bills claimed KR/WR Marcus Thigpen off waivers from the Bucs.
The Bills have been using Fred Jackson on punt returns, so Thigpen should provide an upgrade. It's not a good sign for Marquise Goodwin, who was a healthy scratch last week. Thigpen averaged 16.3 yards on punt returns in four games with the Bucs. Nov 26 - 5:32 PM

Buccaneers promoted KR/WR Marcus Thigpen from their practice squad.

He will take injured Trindon Holliday's place as the Bucs' kick returner.
Oct 31 - 4:29 PM

Dolphins RB Marcus Thigpen has been moved to receiver.

Standing in at 5-foot-9, 195 pounds, Thigpen is slight for either position. Thigpen was active for all 16 games last season, but rushed just six times for 18 yards. He added eight catches for 97 yards and struggled on returns. He's fighting for one of the final spots on the Dolphins' 53-man roster.
Jun 2 - 5:14 PM

Dolphins RB Marcus Thigpen caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown in Miami's Week 15 win over the Patriots.

Thigpen's 14-yard score with 1:15 remaining proved to be the game winner. Miami's No. 3 running back made an excellent adjustment to an under-thrown pass before shaking LB Dont'a Hightower. It was a huge play, but Thigpen remains miles from fantasy relevance.

Marcus Thigpen rushed four times for 10 yards in Week 13 against the Jets.

Thigpen played a limited role behind Lamar Miller and Mike Gillislee. He was targeted just once in the passing game and will likely be the No. 3 back going forward.

Marcus Thigpen is expected to be Lamar Miller's backup going forward.

Daniel Thomas (ankle) is out indefinitely. Rookie Mike Gillislee is going to be active for the first time all year, but Thigpen is ahead of him on the depth chart. Usually just a return man, Thigpen has spent three years in the CFL and spent time on the practice squads of the Eagles and Broncos. There's no handcuff appeal here.

The Palm Beach Post reports that Marcus Thigpen could take over the "Reggie Bush role" in the Dolphins' offense in 2013.

Not in the essence that Thigpen will start or play heavy snaps, but beat writer Ben Volin expects him to line up in the slot and act as a scatback on third downs. Thigpen handled return duties for Miami last season, but he played just 33 snaps on offense. We'd be surprised if he played a big offensive role.

Dolphins signed RB Marcus Thigpen to a reserve/future contract.

After spending time in the camps of the Eagles and Broncos in 2009, Thigpen became the first player in CFL history to score touchdowns five different ways in the same season (punt return, kickoff return, missed field goal return, running, receiving). The Fins will give him a look as a kick returner.
