Report: Deonte Thompson leaving practice squad to sign with Bills 53-man roster

In 2012, Thompson was a sleeper in the Ravens' receiving corps after being undrafted out of Florida. Now it looks like his time in Baltimore has come to an end.

Receiver Deonte Thompson's time in Baltimore may have just come to an end.

According to The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, Thompson has decided to leave the team's practice squad for a spot on the Bills' 53-man roster.

Thompson was a sleeper prospect in 2012 after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Florida. He made the team's 53-man roster and was expected to play a bigger role in 2013. However, injuries slowed him down and he was never quite able to make the impact folks had hoped. He made the 53-man roster out of training camp but had been on the Ravens' practice squad for the majority of this season.

Thompson has a lot of raw talent, though it was going to be tough for him to crack the rotation with Marlon Brown, Kamar Aiken and Michael Campanaro ahead of him on the depth chart.
