Kenbrell Thompkins Could Be The Anti-Hernandez
Kenbrell Thompkins was signed before Aaron Hernandezs arrest and possibly wouldnt have been signed after it. The rookie has emerged as one of the best receivers on the roster. He started Thursday nights preseason game against the Lions, catching eight passes for 116 yards.
The cousin of Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, Thompkins history was recently detailed by the Boston Herald. At age seven, he shot himself in the arm. In middle school, he was selling drugs. An arrest for armed robbery prompted one of multiple expulsions from high school. Later, Thompkins was busted for possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, and he served 28 days in jail.
