Houston Texans trade for Demaryius Thomas

  • Demaryius Thomas bracing for trade out of Denver

As first reported by the NFL's Ian Rapoport, the Houston Texans have traded a 4th round pick and swapped 7th round picks for Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas. Happily, with a couple hours to spare, Gaine got the deal done, as the Texans sent a 2019 fourth and seventh round pick to the Denver Broncos for Thomas and a 2019 seventh round pick.

Through eight games this season, the 30-year-old has 36 catches for 402 yards and three touchdowns in Denver. Thomas, who is also a two-time Associated Press All-Pro selection (2013-14), finishes his Broncos career as the franchise's leader in 100-yard receiving games (33) while ranking second in team history in receiving touchdowns, second in receiving yards and third in receptions.

Thomas will line up opposite star DeAndre Hopkins, a potentially deadly combination for Watson and the 5-3, AFC South-leading Texans.

Week 9 of the National Football League season is nearly here and midway in the week the odds makers in Las Vegas have chosen the Denver Broncos to be the favorites in their game against the Houston Texans. The Texans, 5-3, are now sitting atop the AFC South and were in need of another wide receiver after Will Fuller suffered a torn ACL in a win over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday. "We thought this would give Courtland a chance to get out there and play more and be a bigger part of it because we think he's ready to go". But by moving Thomas, at the very least you'll free up roster space for younger players, he said. Denver has missed the playoffs the last two seasons, and it looks like they will again this year, too. "Sutton and Thomas are both 6'3", further proving that Sutton may be Thomas 2.0.
