Broncos trade WR Demaryius Thomas to Texans

So as the clock ticked toward yesterday's 3:00 p.m. National Football League trade deadline, many names were bandied about, and as the lunch hour hit, rumors of a Texans trade for five time Pro Bowl wideout Demaryius Thomas bubbled up.

As part of the deal, Denver is getting back a fourth-round pick and is swapping seventh-round picks with the Texans (the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport first reported the deal).

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

Also, the move frees up the Broncos to give younger wide receivers, like rookies Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton and first-year player Tim Patrick. Sutton was the 40th overall pick in this year's draft out of SMU, and was already drawing rave reviews in preseason.


Miller wasn't the only one in Denver who publicly lamented Thomas' trade to Houston.

This isn't going to be a game that will see a dominate team on either said, but most likely a game where it will come down to who plays the best in the fourth quarter as the one-point difference by the odds makers states at the mid-way point of the week. 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. Second, and perhaps more importantly, the message the Broncos received yesterday was that, in at least some small way, their front office is cashing it in on 2018. That can't be great for team morale, and for what it's worth, the betting line on the game has moved from Broncos -2.5 to a pick 'em.

The Texans have a need at wide receiver after Will Fuller was lost for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, suffered during the team's win over the Dolphins on Thursday night.
