Schlereth: There is value in the Broncos trading Demaryius Thomas

Following the Broncos' fifth loss of the season on Sunday, October 28, wide receiver Demaryius Thomas told reporters that he felt he had a fifty-fifty chance of getting traded. Happily, with a couple hours to spare, Gaine got the deal done, as the Texans sent a 2019 fourth and seventh round pick to the Denver Broncos for Thomas and a 2019 seventh round pick.

Thomas has 402 receiving yards and three touchdowns in eight games this season with the Broncos.

Thomas' departure from the Broncos opens the door for more playing time for second-round pick Courtland Sutton. "He developed into an elite player over the years, establishing himself as one NFL's most productive, consistent and reliable wide receivers".

Thomas will line up opposite star DeAndre Hopkins, a potentially deadly combination for Watson and the 5-3, AFC South-leading Texans. He has five consecutive seasons of at least 90 catches and 1,000 receiving yards.

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.

Thomas is owed $14 million in base salary next season. Assistant coach Wes Welker is a former teammate of Thomas, and the entire Sports Performance staff, led by Senior Director Luke Richesson, were all in Denver before moving to Houston this past offseason.

The New England Patriots may have done nothing on National Football League trade deadline day, and after a Monday night that came with rampant speculation that the Patriots were looking for a 'premier wideout, ' but it was not for a lack of trying. "Sutton and Thomas are both 6'3", further proving that Sutton may be Thomas 2.0.
