It looks like former Husky defensive end, Everrett Thompson, has signed or is about to sign an undrafted free-agent contract with the Arizona Cardinals. This all comes via Donte Robinson, Thompson’s agent on twitter.

This is great news for Thompson as he has been looking for a spot since graduating from the University of Washington. This contract is most likely just a spot for training camp with the potential of earning a position on the team.
Thompson has experience playing defensive tackle in college but spent the majority of his time at the defensive end. His Senior year at UW, he recorded 41 total tackles, 19 being solo, five were a tackle for loss, and he also recorded two sacks. In the game against Hawaii, Thompson blocked two PATs.
He has been a productive player from the beginning for the Huskies in his freshman year he had 18 tackles, two sacks, and five tackles for loss in 11 games.
The depth chart for the Arizona Cardinals could be improved at the defensive end position. Right now the Cardinals list (in order); Calais Campbell, Vonnie Holliday, and Ronald Talley as the ends. Thompson will look to find his way on the roster or the practice squad. And Arizona is looking for Thompson to add more size to the position. Thompson is listed at 6’6, 272 on the Huskies website. It is unknown if he has added or decreased weight since school.
Either way, Thompson is a former Husky to watch as he looks for a way onto the Arizona roster.
