NFL teams bring @100 or so guys to camp and then cut down. Everybody gets a look-see, and every season a few long-shots end up making somebody’s 53.
No harm in signing an athletic camp-body early on.
Athlete may be an understatement. He played QB, RB, DB, and special teams in college. The Patriots viewed him as a Safety, the Seahawks viewed him as a LB. He is a Will McClay dream-come-true (uber-athletic and cheap). I don't want to get too excited about a middle of February off-the-street signing but this defense needs athleticism and speed. Hope he works out.Elite athlete Thompson who stole the show. He turned in a blazing 6.57-second 3-cone, 4.01 short shuttle, 4.45-second 40, 20 bench reps, a 39 ½-inch vertical, and an 11’1” broad jump.
