Houston trades with Broncos for wide receiver

And today, just hours before the 4pm deadline, he was.

The Broncos traded Thomas to the Houston Texans on Tuesday according to a source. This season, he had 36 catches for 402 yards and three TDs in eight games. The Broncos are acquiring the Texans' 2019 fourth- and seventh-round draft picks as part of the deal, while Houston gets back the Broncos' 2019 seventh-round selection.

Thomas' departure from the Broncos opens the door for more playing time for second-round pick Courtland Sutton.

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.

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. The speed that made Thomas' NFL career has diminished, but that doesn't mean he can't be effective as a target for Deshaun Watson. For his career, Thomas has played in 125 games for with 665 receptions for 9,055 yards with a 13.6 ypc average.

But the Texans found a willing trade partner in Denver. The other is money.

If the deal goes down, Thomas' first game will be against the Denver Broncos....in Denver.

With Thomas set to enter the final, most expensive season of the $70 million contract he received in 2015, the Broncos were set to pay him $17.5 million next year without a move. It's a no-brainer for the books.
