Denver Broncos Trade Demaryius Thomas To Houston Texans

Denver Broncos Trade Demaryius Thomas To Houston Texans

Thomas, who in Denver was averaging 50.3 receiving yards per game with three scores on the season, had been given a rating of 2.0.

Thomas ended up getting traded from the Broncos to the Texans for a fourth- and seventh-round pick, but the Patriots were one of three teams that tried to pry him from Denver before he was sent to Houston.

Below are grades for both the Texans and the Broncos in the Thomas trade.

In other trading, benchmark US crude lost 71 cents to $66.11 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The S&P 500, the benchmark for many index funds, is now 9.4 percent below the peak it reached in September.

After watching the Oakland Raiders get a first-round pick for Amari Cooper, much of Broncos Country is outraged that Thomas fetched only a fourth-round pick, but that's the unfortunate diminished value with a player who is going to cost a team almost $20 million over the next two years. The Texans, 5-3, are now sitting atop the AFC South and were in need of another wide receiver after Will Fuller suffered a torn ACL in a win over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday.

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. First, I'm sure once they're done giving Thomas his physical today, the Texans coaches will sit him down and supplement the scouting report with whatever intel he can provide.

Thomas also is a relatively low-priced gamble for Houston. Houston in that case would save $14 million. According to ESPN, the teams will also swap seventh-round picks. The other is money. And while it's unlikely that the Texans will even touch Thomas at that salary next year, taking on what they could of the four-time Pro Bowler's 2018 contract made sense for a desperate Texans squad, especially in the wake of Will Fuller's season-ending torn ACL suffered last Thursday.
