Texans acquire WR Thomas from Broncos

Texans acquire WR Thomas from Broncos

According to Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, the Eagles, Patriots and Titans all made offers, but ultimately he was shipped to Houston in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick and the teams will swap seventh-rounders.

Thomas has 402 receiving yards and three touchdowns in eight games this season with the Broncos.

The Broncos will now look to rookies Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton along with first-year player Tim Patrick to carry the load at wide receiver.

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

Thomas was drafted by the Broncos with the 22nd overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.




But the Texans found a willing trade partner in Denver. He is not the same elite-level receiver he was from 2012 to 2016, when he became one of four receivers in league history to record at least 90 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards in five consecutive seasons. Thomas' is set to make $4.5 million this season and $14 million next, per Spotrac.com.

For Thomas, a nine-year run with the Broncos has come to an unceremonious close. Sure enough, the Broncos announced on Monday that the perennial Pro Bowl wide receiver is being sent to Houston to play for the Texans. So the gambling public is far less bullish on Denver than they were Sunday night.

Despite the fact that Thomas is a team legend and will be in the Ring of Fame as soon as he's done playing, this was the right move for the Broncos, who would have probably had to release Thomas at season's end anyway.
