Kenbrell Tompkins stays with the Jets


A well-traveled receiver may have finally found a home.

Receiver Kenbrell Thompkins, who made an impact for the Patriots as an undrafted free agent in 2013 but who thereafter bounced around the league, has re-signed with the Jets, accepting his restricted free agency tender.

Appearing in seven games last year with the Jets, Thompkins caught 17 passes for 165 yards. He had been promoted to the active roster in late October, after joining the practice squad in early October. The prior month, he’d been cut by the Raiders, signed to the New England practice squad, and released from the New England practice squad, all within the course of 30 days.

Under the terms of the deal, Thompkins is due to make $1.671 million in 2016.
