Broncos ‘closing in’ on deal to trade Demaryius Thomas to Texans

The Denver Broncos have traded receiver Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans. More

The team sent a fourth round pick to the Broncos and swapped seventh round picks, according to multiple media reports.

Thomas had 36 catches for 402 yards and three touchdowns this season.

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. "Obviously, the Pittsburgh one is the biggest one I think that stands out that we all remember, but he was a guy that was very productive and consistent for a long, long time, and was healthy most of the time".

The Broncos' warm feelings for Thomas might subside by Sunday when they kick off their Week 9 game against ... the Texans.

Pochettino proves Spurs not just the 'Kane team', admits Guardiola
They are a young team with a good 'keeper and a good striker so they have everything to be there", he added. We have to perform better than them - and, of course, have a little bit of luck in a decisive moment.

As far as legacy goes, Thomas will go down as one of the top receivers in Broncos franchise history.

But the Texans found a willing trade partner in Denver. He joined Torry Holt (six), Marvin Harrison (five) and Antonio Brown (five) as the only players in National Football League history with five consecutive seasons totaling at least 90 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards (2012-16). If he does not prove worthy of the $17.5 million cap charge he will cost in 2019, the final season of the five-year deal he signed with Denver in 2015, the Texans can cut him before June 1, in which case he would cost only $3.5 million in dead cap charges.

For Thomas, a nine-year run with the Broncos has come to an unceremonious close. $14 million seems pricy, but a wide receiving corps of DeAndre Hopkins, Thomas, a healthy Fuller, and Coutee in 2019 is fairly mind blowing to think about.

Both the Texans and Broncos have had their ups-and-downs this season with the Texans being 5-3 overall and the Broncos entering the game at 3-5, losing to the Kansas City Chiefs, 30-23 last Sunday. They willfully got a little worse for 2018 in order to get better sometime down the road. Seeing NFL teams, from real contenders like the Rams and Eagles to aspiring contenders like the Texans and Redskins, making deals is pretty damn cool.
