Thompson attended Thomasville High School in Thomasville, Georgia. As a senior, he had 19 sacks and 61 tackles.

Regarded as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Thompson was listed as the ninth best defensive tackle prospect of his class.[1]

Thompson was originally redshirted as a freshman in 2008, but had the redshirt taken off after an injury to Jamie Cumbie. He played in the team’s final 12 games and recorded 15 tackles and a sack. As a sophomore in 2009, he started all 13 games and had 27 tackles. As a junior in 2010, he had 41 tackles and a sack.

Thompson was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the third round, 93rd overall, in the 2012 NFL Draft. In 2013, he played in all 16 regular-season games, starting the last seven games, which included the Wild Card playoff game, where he replaced the injured Geno Atkins.

On March 25, 2016, Thompson signed a one-year contract with the Bengals that will keep him through the 2016 season.[2] He was placed on the Reserve/PUP list to start the season after he suffered a torn ACL in Week 17 of the 2015 season.[3] Since he spent the entire season on reserve, his contract tolled, keeping him under contract for the 2017 season.

On August 20, 2017, Thompson was released by the Bengals.[4]
