Summary

Chris Thompson would be missed in Washington, particularly off the field where he's evolved into a veteran leader. On the field, his role has never been more than a part-time complementary piece in obvious passing situations. If he can stay healthy -- which has always been a problem -- he should continue to be a safety valve for the starting quarterback, but he's behind Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson in the pecking order.
