Texans acquire WR Thomas from Broncos

Texans Bill O'Brien's parting words still sting Broncos QB Case Keenum

Demaryius Thomas has been rumored to be on the trade block in Denver, and today, Ian Rapoport is reporting that he is being traded to the Houston Texans for a mid-round pick. Together with other injuries, this leaves Houston with just four semi-healthy receivers, a hugely depleted secondary, and a linebacker core that is fast becoming a patchwork of free agents and special teams players.

Thomas, 30, has been to the Pro Bowl four times since entering the league in 2010, a career in which he's caught 665 passes for more than 9,000 yards and 60 touchdowns. The Broncos are acquiring the Texans' 2019 fourth- and seventh-round draft picks as part of the deal, while Houston gets back the Broncos' 2019 seventh-round selection.




The welcoming the Broncos and their fans give Thomas at Mile High Stadium after seven-plus years of service should be a sight to see for National Football League fans of all stripes.

The trade by the Texans is a huge move for their offense and after losing standout Will Fuller following his ACL tear in Week 8 against the Miami Dolphins. The speed that made Thomas' NFL career has diminished, but that doesn't mean he can't be effective as a target for Deshaun Watson. Green Bay didn't get much in return for the versatile player and only ended up with a 2020 seventh-round pick. One is the aforementioned Sutton. The Texans will be in Denver Sunday afternoon to take on the Broncos. He won a Super Bowl with Denver for the 2015 season.
