  Redskins | Reduce roster    Mon Aug 27, 04:54 PM

The Washington Redskins released QB Jonathan Crompton Monday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: This may be the last we hear from Jonathan 'Straight Outta' Crompton. He was an All Pro for the Black Eyed Joe All Nickname Team but isn't going to stick in the pros.

The Washington Redskins have signed QB Jonathan Crompton to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: At least he's still in the league. The Black Eyed Joe All-Name Team wouldn't be the same without Jonathan 'City of' Crompton!

  Buccaneers | Reduce roster to NFL limit of 53 players    Sat Sep 3, 07:37 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers waived RB Armando Allen, C Matt Allen, OT Will Barker, SS Ahmad Black, OT Cory Brandon, OT Thomas Claiborne, QB Jonathan Crompton, OG Marc Dile, TE Daniel Hardy, SS Dominique Harris, LB Brandon Heath, LB Simoni Lawrence, DL Alex Magee, TE Nathan Overbay, WR Maurice Price, TE Ryan Purvis, LB Nick Reveiz, PK Jacob Rogers, LB Derrell Smith and DL Al Woods Saturday, Sept. 3.

Footballguys view: Black was a standout at Florida and thought to have a long-term chance with the team after he was drafted in the fifth-round, but an injury-marred camp doomed him.

  Buccaneers | Jonathan Crompton agrees to terms    Fri Aug 5, 01:36 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with free-agent QB Jonathan Crompton (Patriots) on a three-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Crompton was highly touted by a few draft experts including Russ Lande, but this will make his third team in just over one year in the league. Still, he was signed to a three-year deal, so this could be a sign that the team is planning for Josh Johnson's departure in free agency next year.

  Patriots | Hoyer not bothered by selection of QB Mallett    Sat May 21, 12:45 PM

Mike Reiss, from ESPNBoston.com, reports veteran backup QB Brian Hoyer is not bothered by the Patriots selection of Ryan Mallett in the third-round of the 2011 NFL Draft. "It's always good to have competition," said Hoyer, who served as Tom Brady's top backup in 2009 and 2010. "Obviously, Ryan was a big-time college player. He has a great arm. It will be fun for me to compete with him, and also to compete with Tom and Jonathan [Crompton]."

Footballguys view: Hoyer is a fiery competitor who may be able to hold off Mallett this season. Some see Mallett as the future for New England, while others are convinced that he'll be developed then traded for draft picks. Mallett has an elite skill set as a passer, so we'll see if he can give Hoyer a run for his money in training camp.

  Patriots | Depth at quarterback    Fri Apr 29, 09:56 PM

New England Patriots rookie QB Ryan Mallett will be able to sit buried on the depth chart and be afforded time to learn the system. QB Tom Brady is firmly entrenched as the starter, and Brian Hoyer has shown promise as his backup. The Patriots also have Jonathan Crompton, who was a fifth-round selection in 2010, on the roster. Hoyer is entering the final year of his contract, so if he plays well during the preseason the Patriots could look to shop him to another team if there is interest around the NFL.

Footballguys view: Mallett, Crompton, Hoyer: It's a depth chart full of potential trading pieces and once again the Pats seem to be looking ahead as well as to present day. Of the three, Mallett has the greatest upside.

  Patriots | Jonathan Crompton signs    Tue Nov 2, 10:23 PM

The New England Patriots signed free-agent QB Jonathan Crompton (Chargers) to their practice squad Tuesday, Nov. 2.

Footballguys view: Crompton was a fast-rising prospect at one time this spring, but the Chargers cut him after drafting him in the fifth round. The Patriots track record of evaluating and developing late-round QBs is better than most organizations, so this deserves to be filed away in deep dynasty leagues.

  Chargers | Jonathan Crompton released    Tue Sep 7, 02:29 PM

The San Diego Chargers have released QB Jonathan Crompton from their practice squad.

Footballguys view: Jonathan 'City of' Crompton may have to find another team to develop his game. He has good upside but is very raw after only one good season in college at Tennessee.

  Chargers | Eight players added to practice squad    Sun Sep 5, 04:19 PM

The San Diego Chargers have announced they have re-signed WR Seyi Ajirotutu, RB Curtis Brinkley, QB Jonathan Crompton, TE Dedrick Epps, WR Richard Goodman, OL Jeff Hansen, OT Nic Richmond and LB Kion Wilson to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: Jonathan 'City of' Crompton has good upside, but was somewhat raw coming out of Tenneseee and only had one year of good production in college. Seyi Ajirotutu is a quick learner with good size and leaping ability.

  Chargers | Six players let go    Sat Sep 4, 03:11 PM

The San Diego Chargers have released QB Jonathan Crompton, CB Nate Vasher, RBs Curtis Brinkley and Shawnbrey McNeal as well as WRs Seyi Ajirotutu and Jeremy Williams, reports Kevin Acee, of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Footballguys view: We feel both WRs Seyi Ajirotutu and Jeremy Williams could be added to the practice squad because of their developmental upside. Even QB Jonathan Crompton might be worth a spot so he can continue to develop his pro game.

  Chargers | Jonathan Crompton signed    Wed Jun 2, 03:18 PM

The San Diego Chargers have signed fifth round draft choice QB Jonathan Crompton to a four-year deal, according to Adam Schefter, of ESPN. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The rookie quarterback, Jonathan 'City of' Crompton, has already made the Black Eyed Joe All-Nickname Team. We love the upside of Crompton, who flashed big time ability for one season under Lane Kiffin at Tennessee. While he'll never unseat Philip Rivers, he could develop into a fine backup quarterback. If Crompton reaches his potential he could end up starting for another team down the road.
