Demaryius Thomas has been traded from the Denver Broncos to the Houston Texans for a fourth-round pick, and the two teams are trading seventh-round picks, too.
Thomas, who has spent each of his nine seasons with the Broncos, was dealt to the Houston Texans in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick. Fellow wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, cornerback Chris Harris, center Matt Paridis and others joined Broncos officials in honoring Thomas upon his exit.
"He developed into an elite player over the years, establishing himself as one of the NFL's most productive, consistent and reliable wide receivers".
Thomas will have the chance to face his former team in just five days, as the Texans face the Broncos in Mile High Stadium on November 4.
Thiem's hopes of home win ended by Nishikori
Anderson has a shot at a fifth career title and second of the year after winning in NY in February. The Japanese star triumphed 6-4 6-3 to improve his record against the Kazakh to 8-0.
The teams will also swap seventh-round picks.
He had five consecutive years of 1,000-plus yards receiving between 2012-16, and just missed that milestone last season with 949 yards. $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. "We thought this would give Courtland a chance to get out there and play more and be a bigger part of it because we think he's ready to go". Assistant coach Wes Welker is a former teammate of Thomas, and the entire Sports Performance staff, led by Senior Director Luke Richesson, were all in Denver before moving to Houston this past offseason.
The Patriots will host the Green Bay Packers in a primetime showdown next Sunday night.
