Wide receiver Deonte Thompson didn’t make the Cowboys’ initial 53-man roster on Saturday, but he will reportedly be back with the team in time for Week One.

Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Cowboys plan to bring Thompson back to their receiving corps. He would take the spot of Noah Brown, who missed the entire preseason with a hamstring injury and would be headed to injured reserve.

Thompson signed with the Cowboys as a free agent in March after catching 38 passes for the Bills last season. He missed time this summer with a strained Achilles, but returned to the field before being released.

Tavon Austin, Michael Gallup, Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns and Terrance Williams make up the rest of the receiver group in Dallas.

  1. This is a good move. He has more speed to stretch the
    field than any other WR’s on the roster. The also keep
    Noah Brown and allow his hamstring to heal.
    When they cut Thompson and kept Gathers that was clearly
    a bad move. This makes a bad decision to keep Gathers
    a little easier to take.

  2. “Tavon Austin, Michael Gallup, Cole Beasley, Allen Hurns and Terrance Williams make up the rest of the receiver group in Dallas.”

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  3. Everyone wanted to keep Gathers until he got busted for pot. Im guessing that he passed a drug test or they wouldnt of kept him. So whats the story behind him carrying the weed?
    I do agree with these players that they should be able to use weed for pain remedies, they are right, the crap that they prescribe now for pain and years past are Very much more harmful and additive then weed. Weed seems harmless with no side effects. Pain is much more then just physical but also mental so make it legal and stop giving these players harmful addictive pills to pop.

    BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Not the best receiving core in the NFL but then again how many best receiving cores in the NFL won the super bowl?
    I’ll wait….

  5. I agree it is rediculous that players lose millions due to
    suspensions for weed. For a substance that is legal
    in many states and legal in more states for medical
    purposes.The league seems to argue that the optics are
    bad if they allow use, however, behind the scenes they
    are using it as a bargaining chip.
    Using the use of weed as a bargaining chip is hypocritical
    behavior by the league and especially Goodell. How can the
    league expect the players association to react when the league
    unilaterally imposes it will at all times.
    It time the league solves the anthem policy and the weed policy
    and here is a hint for Roger, talk to the PA , involve them
    in the negotiations, just didn’t try to jam it, like the anthem policy.
    That did a lot of good for the league ….it led to more bad
    publicity. Great move Roger!
