Deonte Thompson caught 4-of-4 targets for 107 yards in the Bills' Week 7 win over the Bucs.
Signed by the Bills just five days ago after he was cut by the receiver-needy Bears, Thompson exploited the Bucs' secondary relentlessly on deep balls. Thompson can really run, but his on-field performance has been up and down everywhere he's been as a career journeyman. He's a deep-league add at best. Oct 22 - 4:47 PM

Bills signed WR Deonte Thompson.

RB Joe Banyard was released in a corresponding roster move. Cut by the Bears last Wednesday, Thompson has 11 receptions in five games this season. He should see immediate snaps for the Bills' laughably-thin receiver corps.
Oct 17 - 6:33 PM

Bears released WR Deonte Thompson.

Thompson's snaps were dialed all the way back in Week 5, playing just eight snaps after being in on 53-of-68 plays in Week 4. He caught 11 balls for 125 yards and a score in five games. WR Tanner Gentry takes his roster spot.
Oct 11 - 11:25 AM

Deonte Thompson caught 4-of-5 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 2 loss to the Bucs.

Thompson's touchdown was a completely meaningless 14-yard strike with 1:43 remaining in a game the Bears were losing 29-0. Apparently the Bears' No. 2 receiver, Thompson will fall down a peg once Markus Wheaton (finger) is healthy enough to play.
Sep 17 - 6:29 PM

Bears WR Deonte Thompson caught 1-of-2 targets for 15 yards in the team's Week 1 loss to the Falcons.

Thompson played a ton of snaps, but he simply wasn't getting open. The speedster is barely on the radar in deep leagues despite his big playing-time share.
Sep 10 - 4:47 PM

Bears re-signed WR Deonte Thompson.

Pressed into duty by injuries in front of him, Thompson caught a career-high 22 passes last season. He's primarily a return man. The 28 year old will again compete for one of the Bears' final roster spots.
Mar 21 - 4:39 PM

Deonte Thompson 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 16 loss to the Redskins.

Thompson's score was of the true garbage-time variety with the Bears already getting smoked 41-13. The speedy fifth-year wideout has now had big back-to-back statistical games, but he won't be someone to trust in Week 17.
Sat, Dec 24, 2016 05:02:00 PM

Deonte Thompson caught 8-of-10 targets for 110 yards in the Bears' Week 15 loss to the Packers.

This one could be classified as "out of nowhere." Thompson doubled his season receiving total this afternoon. He entered Week 15 with 333 career yards. With Alshon Jeffery back from suspension, the odds are next to zero Thompson will get even half this yardage in either of Chicago's final two games.

Bears re-signed WR/KR Deonte Thompson to a one-year contract.

Thompson yo-yoed on and off the 53-man roster last season, but was effective as a kick returner. If he's to keep his roster spot, special teams will be the key.

Bears promoted WR Deonte Thompson from the practice squad.

It could be an indication Eddie Royal (knee) will miss another game.

Bears signed WR Deonte Thompson to their practice squad.

Thompson had a fine preseason with the Bills, posting 96 yards and one touchdown across two games. Coach Rex Ryan went as far to say the Bills were getting "a lot of calls" about Thompson's availability. That was an obvious lie because the Bills later cut him. Thompson runs 4.31 at 6-foot, 203 pounds.

Bills released WR Deonte Thompson with an injury settlement.

Thompson had a strong preseason prior to his foot injury, posting 96 yards and a touchdown in two games. He reportedly drew trade interest from some teams. Thompson could resurface as a kick returner when healthy.

Thompson has 15 career catches for 147 scoreless yards.
