Former Florida WR Chris Thompson has a new football home.
Thompson played four years at Florida, and he just signed a free agent deal with the Houston Texans. The team announced the transaction Tuesday.
Thompson played primarily as a kick returner in 2016, and he totaled 13 kick returns on the season, a team-high, for 283 yards. During his four-year career, he played multiple positions, and he only recorded nine catches for 78 yards in four seasons with the Gators.

Thompson does have some speed. The Gainesville, Florida, native was a former 3-star prospect in the class of 2013.
