Houston Texans still Vegas underdogs after Demaryius Thomas trade

Demaryius Thomas bracing for trade out of Denver Fantasy Football: Demaryius Thomas Trade to Houston Opens Big Opportunity for Courtland Sutton
| 01 November, 2018, 09:43

Several Broncos players expressed such sentiment Tuesday following the team's decision to trade the veteran wide receiver to the Houston Texans during the National Football League trade deadline.

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. Thomas has 36 receptions for 402 yards and three touchdowns in 2018, and is signed through next season at $14 million. But his hefty salary-cap figure for 2019 ($17.533 million in what is the previous year of his deal) and the emergence of rookie Courtland Sutton as a big-play threat had raised the possibility of Thomas being shipped elsewhere. And per the NFL Network's Mike Giardi, league sources believe that Belichick's bid to nab Thomas came with the request that the Broncos eat some of the money remaining on the wideout's salary. Thomas is excited, too, but he admitted that he hasn't watched much of Watson because, until the trade, he was focused on his old team.

He had five consecutive years of 1,000-plus yards receiving between 2012-16, and just missed that milestone last season with 949 yards.


One of these apparently included wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.

It won't take long for Thomas to get a chance to go up against his former teammates. One ancillary benefit of this trade is that the Texans just so happen to be playing the Broncos this weekend, which helps in two ways. That can't be great for team morale, and for what it's worth, the betting line on the game has moved from Broncos -2.5 to a pick 'em.

The NFL trade deadline is set for 4 p.m., so there's still time for a move to occur.
