The Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived wide receiver Deven Thompkins on Thursday with an injury designation. Thompkins played in 22 games over the past two seasons for the Buccaneers, catching 22 passes for 115 yards and one touchdown.

Thompkins was originally an undrafted free agent out of Utah State in 2022. His most significant role over the past two seasons has been as a return man. He averaged 9.5 yards on 31 punt returns and 21.1 yards on 28 kickoff returns.

The Buccaneers' offseason roster had been at its 91-man maximum before the release of Thompkins but now has one open spot. The Buccaneers just concluded the second of their three weeks of OTA practices.
