Texans agree to acquire WR Demaryius Thomas from Broncos

The New England Patriots are particularly interested in Demaryius Thomas of the Denver Broncos and Golden Tate of the Detroit Lions as they look to bolster their receiving corps ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

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.

Jay Glazer of Fox Sports first reported the Patriots' interest in jumping into the trade market for a top-end wideout, reporting on Sunday the Pats will be very active.

The Broncos sent Thomas as well as a seventh-round pick in the 2019 draft to the Texans in exchange for a fourth- and a seventh-round pick, in the 2019 draft.

Though there's emotional connection between the Broncos and Thomas (he's spent his first nine years in the National Football League with just the Broncos), and though trading him to New England would leave a bitter taste in the mouths of Denver fans, it might be the best scenario for all parties.

First and foremost, trading Thomas to New England would give him a legitimate shot at a second Super Bowl title.

You know who doesn't believe the latter rumor? At that point, the Broncos might be in position to bring Thomas back as a free agent.

Thomas would discuss and demonstrate and the practices would go on. Recently Broncos coach Vance Joseph summed up the reason to throw the ball Sutton's way with "it's either a big play down the field or a penalty on the guy who's covering him". "I'll be able to do what I love".

Their next scheduled game against the Patriots will be a road game in 2020. In eight games this season, the 30-year old WR has just 36 receptions for 402 yards and three touchdowns. Hamilton is now recovering from a sprained MCL he suffered in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Arizona Cardinals, while Patrick has played 60 snaps all season, 19 of those this past Sunday in Kansas City.
