Broncos Finalizing Deal To Send Demaryius Thomas To Texans

Broncos are 2.5-point favorites against Texans this week

Demaryius Thomas has been rumored to be on the trade block in Denver, and today, Ian Rapoport is reporting that he is being traded to the Houston Texans for a mid-round pick.

In exchange for the contract-year wideout, Denver received a fourth-round pick and will swap their seventh-rounder for Houston's. This season, Thomas (6-3, 229) has recorded 36 receptions for 402 yards (11.2 avg.) and three touchdowns in eight games with Denver. "He developed into an elite player over the years, establishing himself as one NFL's most productive, consistent and reliable wide receivers".

The trade means that Thomas will face the Broncos in Denver on Sunday.

The Texans are also one of the few teams that can afford to take on Thomas' salary despite his gradual decline. He joined Torry Holt (six), Marvin Harrison (five) and Antonio Brown (five) as the only players in National Football League history with five consecutive seasons totaling at least 90 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards (2012-16).

Red Sox cap stellar season, win 4th World Series in 15 years
His two-out solo blast to left gave Boston a four-run lead, one protected by Joe Kelly and Chris Sale over the final two innings. Sale ended by throwing a slider past a falling Manny Machado, a meager 4 for 22 (.182) in the Series, and raised both arms.

In regards of cap space, the Texans will acquire $4.5 million for this season and a non-guaranteed $14 million for 2019. "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". The Broncos shipped their longest-tenured player to the Houston Texans, just hours before the trade deadline.

Fuller had 32 catches for 503 yards and four touchdowns this season.

For the uninitiated, that line comes straight out of the 1995 hit movie "Friday", and the reference is ideal, given that Thomas and Miller were teammates since the 2011 season and won Super Bowl 50 together in 2016.

For Thomas, a nine-year run with the Broncos has come to an unceremonious close. And sitting at 3-5 at the season's halfway point, Elway said the time is now.
