Thompson gives Bills much-needed target

(TSX / STATS) -- ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Deonte Thompson signed with the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday and is already one of the team's leading receivers.

Thompson caught all four passes thrown his way for 107 yards in the Bills' 30-27 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. He hauled in a 44-yard reception that led to the winning field goal, the second-longest catch by a Bills wide receiver this season.

"Crazy week, crazy week," Thompson said. "They signed me Tuesday evening. I had to learn the offense and get ready for Sunday. Just a blessing though. I can't thank God enough for this opportunity to come here."
