Receiver Deonte Thompson back with Bills for 3rd time

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Perhaps, the third time in Buffalo will be the charm for receiver Deonte Thompson.

The Bills continued shuffling their roster during their bye week by signing Thompson on Wednesday, a week after the seventh-year player was released by the Dallas Cowboys.

Thompson returns to Buffalo a year after he had 27 catches for 430 yards and a touchdown in 11 games. He also appeared in one game for the Bills in 2014.

With 107 yards receiving in a 30-27 win over Tampa Bay on Oct. 22, 2017, Thompson was the previous Bills player to top 100 yards receiving before rookie Robert Foster had 105 in a 41-10 win at the New York Jets on Sunday.

Thompson had 14 catches for 124 yards in eight games with Dallas. He became the odd-man out in the Cowboys' bid to shake up a sputtering passing attack.

Thompson fills one of the roster spots left open after receiver Terrelle Pryor and backup quarterback Nathan Peterman were released over the past two days.

At 3-7, Buffalo is off until hosting Jacksonville on Nov. 25.
