The Denver Broncos have traded wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texas. The Broncos traded Thomas and a 2019 seventh-round draft pick to the Texans.
In exchange, Denver is receiving a 2019 fourth-round draft pick and 2019 a seventh-round draft pick.
He was the longest-tenured Broncos player before the trade.
He is also the first big name to be moved before the NFL’s 4 pm trade deadline.
Thomas will make his first appearance with the Texans against his old team. Houston travels to Denver, Colo. for Sunday’s 4.05 pm EST game at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.
The 30-year-old Montrose, Georgia native will attempt to help the Texans replace Will Fuller V, who went down with a torn ACL following Thursday Night Football’s game against the Miami Dolphins. Fuller V — the team’s lone deep threat — is lost for the season.
Thomas had 36 receptions for 402 yards with three touchdowns in eight games. His longest reception of the season is for 45-yards.
He played eight-and-a-half seasons with the Broncos. He appeared in 125 games, including 111 starts. Thomas had 665 receptions for 9.055 yards and 60 touchdowns.
The former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets player is in the second-to-last year of his five-year, $70 million deal he signed with the Broncos prior to the 2015 season. He is making $4.5 million this season.
The Texans will be responsible with what to do with him next. He is due $14 million for the 2019 season. However, the Texans have an out, as they could release him and only be responsible for $3.53 million in dead cap space in the off-season.
