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

Demaryius Thomas bracing for trade out of Denver

Demaryius Thomas bracing for trade out of Denver

The Patriots didn't land Demaryius Thomas, as the Broncos wide receiver was traded to the Texans on Tuesday, but that doesn't mean they weren't interested. It's a relatively low-priced deal for a first-place Houston team that's dealing with injuries at receiver.

This season Thomas has played in eight games with 36 receptions (56 targets) for 402 yards and three touchdowns. The Broncos will send a seventh-round pick to the Texans, along with Thomas, and get back a fourth- and seventh-rounder, ESPN.com detailed.

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

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.

But as anemic as the offense was for 58 minutes and 26 seconds of the game the Kentucky defense was just the opposite. Missouri had the ball eight times in the second half and went three-and-out in each of those eight possessions.

Houston is looking to fill the void left by Will Fuller's torn ACL he suffered last week against the Miami Dolphins.

The five-time Pro Bowl selection ranks high on several franchise lists, including No. 2 for most receiving touchdowns and receiving yards.

Thomas also is a relatively affordable gamble for Houston. Houston in that case would save $14 million. Green Bay didn't get much in return for the versatile player and only ended up with a 2020 seventh-round pick. The other is money. He won a Super Bowl with Denver for the 2015 season.

With a tough game at the Denver Broncos coming up this Sunday they have been dealt some good news. It's a no-brainer for the books.
