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.

US President Trump plans to end birthright citizenship: Axios
Any legislative agenda depends on success in midterm elections next week, the president's biggest electoral test since 2016. The president will do this by signing an executive order, he said in a TV interview. "You don't need that", Mr Trump said.

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.
