Thompson’s signing comes after Gase completed his first deal as interim GM last week by sending linebacker Darron Lee to the Chiefs in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick.

Thompson, 30, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Ravens in 2012. He has since had three stints with the Bills and also spent time with the Bears and Cowboys.

He totaled 17 catches for 161 yards in 13 games for the Cowboys and Bills in 2018.

Should he survive the cut, Thompson will compete for a spot behind Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson and Jamison Crowder on New York’s depth chart.
