Cowboys Sign Free Agent WR Deonte Thompson

The added some speed to their receiver corps today by . He played for both the and last season.

Thompson, who turned 29 last month, went undrafted in 2012. He had a quiet to start to his career as a reserve and guy in Baltimore and Chicago, but finally got a chance to shine with seven starts last year for the Bills. He 27 catches for 430 yards and one touchdown in just 11 games.

Deonte brings some much-needed speed to the Cowboys . He ran a 4.31 40-yard dash as a rookie, and while he's 29 now he still poses more of a vertical threat than the current Dallas receivers.

Given the low salary in this deal, Thompson may not be seen as much than a replacement for near the bottom of Dallas' . We also have to wait and see what happens with the draft and other moves this to know where he fits into the bigger picture.

For now, though, can take a little comfort in knowing the hasn't completely fallen asleep at the wheel.

Hi. Here’s a to-do list for my fellow ‘Boys fans:
1) QUIT GRIPING about how much you hate Rayne Prescott!!! You have a good-about-to -be-great YOUNG QB who’s JUST THAT…YOUNG!!! Let him grow, let him learn, have his back and LET HIM MAKE MISTAKES–JUST LIKE YOU WOULD HAVE DONE 4 TONY ROMO ( OR ANY WHITE QB) AT THIS AGE!!!
2) QUIT GRIPING about our “sorry” F/O, HC & HOW MUCH YOU HATE BOTH!!! Would you exchange Jerry Jones/Stephen Jones/William McClay for ANY OR ALL of the situations in Cleveland, Miami, Washington DC, or EITHER NEW YORK (Giants or Jets…pick your poison)???
3) QUIT GRIPING about “who we didn’t get” in F/A!!! I happen to LIKE the fact that Dallas DOESN’T overpay anymore and yet can STILL get what they need to fill gaps in!!!
4) Last but not least: LEARN TO SPELL AND PUNCTUATE PROPERLY!!! Did you people SLEEP through 2nd/3rd/4th grade Grammar and Spelling…or were you homeschooled, and your parents didn’t think you’d need to learn to spell & PUNCTUATE while you were learning to HATE AND FEAR EVERYONE NOT THE SAME RACE/RELIGION/ SKIN COLOR & POLITICAL PARTY AS YOU???
Say WHATEVER YOU WANT in response…I’m ready for you!!!
