Patriots Unsuccessfully Tried To Trade For Demaryius Thomas Ahead Of Deadline

However, when Fuller went down Thursday night with a season-ending ACL injury, the need to maintain weaponry in the AFC arms race was certainly exacerbated.

The Denver Broncos have traded one of the best wide receivers in team history - Demaryius Thomas - to the Houston Texans.

One of the primary reasons that Denver was willing to trade Thomas, who has been with the organization since being drafted in 2010, is because it opens the door for more playing time for Courtland Sutton. Plus, the Broncos got a fourth-round pick in return, which is a good exchange for an expensive, aging receiver.

The Red Sox lost that game, but they rebounded in Game 4 and rolled over LA in Game 5 to clinch their fourth title since 2004. By the end of 2018, Palka was a White Sox fan favorite with 27 home runs - a new team rookie record for a left-handed hitter.

Also looking on the bright side, while their depth on the offensive line is far from ideal with backup Greg Mancz now filling in for Zach Fulton and rookie Martinas Rankin failing to impress so far, their protection in both the pass and run game has been vastly improved over the past two weeks, helping Lamar Miller to two straight 100-plus yard rushing games, and not having allowed a single sack against the Dolphins last Thursday.

Thomas had 36 catches for 402 yards and three touchdowns this season.

The five-time Pro Bowl selection ranks high on several franchise lists, including No. 2 for most receiving touchdowns and receiving yards.

Fuller has missed nine games in his first three National Football League seasons.

Thomas, of course, was on the hook for $8.5 million this season ($4.5 million of which will be picked up by the Texans), and has a non-guaranteed $14 million base salary for the 2019 season. Meaning that this weekend against the Denver Broncos, it is highly likely that there will be a rotation of safeties filling in at corner, unless of course Houston brings in depth before the trade deadline. Culturally, Thomas is an easy fit to project, and the expectation is that he will blend right into what is an ultra cohesive locker room.

Thomas has played his entire nine-year career with the Broncos. On the chance that Thomas does have a statistical renaissance with Watson, the Texans will have some interesting work to do on the final year of Thomas' deal.
