So far this season, prior to his release by the New England Patriots, Thompkins had only six catches for 53 yards. During his rookie year, Thompkins scored four touchdowns, had 32 catches and 466 receiving yards. The addition of Thompkins, who displayed some explosive plays in his rookie year, hopefully will provide some upside to a team that really just needs improvement in nearly every aspect of their offense.
