S - KC
Week 3 Outlook
S Tedric Thompson is being released by the Seattle Seahawks, per source.
A 2017 fourth-round pick out of Colorado, Thompson has played three seasons for the Seahawks. He was a full-time starter in 2018, but in 2019 his season was cut short after he tore his labrum. Thompson appears to be fully healthy heading into the 2020 season, and Seattle is releasing him as a salary cap move. Hopefully another team trusts that he’s healthy enough to play at a high level, as it could be difficult to get a physical given current league conditions.
Tedric Thompson racked up seven total tackles and an interception during Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns.
Thompson might have two solid games coming up in which he can add another interception. Next week the Seahawks take on Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. In Week 9, they draw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jameis Winston who just tossed five interceptions in Week 6. Roster Thompson if there is room on the bench.
Tedric Thompson ended Thursday’s win over the Rams with three total tackles and an interception. Thompson picked off Jared Goff in the fourth quarter with an amazing fingertip grab to help Seattle win.
Even with Thompson coming up big for his squad last night, he can be left on waivers in most leagues. Through Week 5, Thompson only has nine total tackles and an interception to his name.
Seahawks safety Tedric Thompson (chest/ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday night’s game against the Chiefs.
Thompson is dealing with swelling in his chest that was discovered earlier in the week while the team was examining his shoulder. Head coach Pete Carroll said Thompson cannot play until the team knows more. “He’s got some swelling in there that’s of question, so we’re just making sure we are doing the right thing,” Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “Just some fluid in an unusual place. It’s not a life-threatening deal at all. It’s just, you can’t play with it so we’ve got to wait until it goes away.” Thompson inherited the starting free safety job in the fifth game of the season when Earl Thomas suffered a season-ending injury.
DB Tedric Thompson recorded six solo tackles, two assisted tackles, one pass defensed, and one interception in the Seattle Seahawks' Week 5 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
Thompson is the Seahawks' new starter at FS following Earl Thomas being placed on injured reserve with a broken leg. The Seahawks' scheme will provide Thompson with plenty of chances to make plays on the ball in the air, but he obviously won't have the same kind of impact on the Seahawks' defense that Thomas did.
