Cowboys sign free agent WR Deonte Thompson to 1-year deal

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Free agent wide receiver Deonte Thompson has signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys.

Thompson joined the Cowboys on Thursday, one day after veteran linebacker Joe Thomas agreed to a two-year deal and was their first acquisition since NFL free agency opened last week.

In six NFL seasons, Thompson has played 53 games for Baltimore, Buffalo and Chicago. The 6-foot receiver has 77 catches for 1,032 yards and four touchdowns, and 82 kickoff returns for a 24.8 yard average.

Thompson was cut after 11 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown in five games last season with Chicago. He signed a week later with the Bills, and had 27 catches for 430 yards and a touchdown in 11 games.
