Patriots made offer for WR Demaryius Thomas

The Denver Broncos traded nine-year veteran Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans on Tuesday.

The Broncos sent Thomas as well as a seventh-round pick in the 2019 draft to the Texans in exchange for a fourth- and a seventh-round pick, in the 2019 draft.

Schlereth's co-host, Mike Evans, however, said he thinks Thomas wouldn't demand a haul on the trade market and questioned if perhaps the Broncos should look to do more than just trade the Pro Bowl wide receiver. It is expected that Sutton will receive more playing time in Thomas's absence.


Broncos vs. Texans in Denver was going to be an interesting Week 9 game without the storyline of Demaryius Thomas' quick return to Mile High.

The Eagles announced they had acquired Golden Tate from the Detroit Lions, reportedly for a third-round pick, shortly after the Thomas news broke. According to OverTheCap, Houston is slated to have more than $91 million in projected cap space, so taking on Thomas is nothing to worry about.

Thomas had acknowledged rumours of a trade in recent weeks, guessing there was a "50-50" chance it would happen, although he wanted to remain in Denver.


The NFL trade deadline is set for 4 p.m., so there's still time for a move to occur. $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.
