The Houston Texans have agreed to acquire WR Demaryius Thomas and a 2019 seventh-round pick from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick and seventh-round pick. The trade is contingent upon Thomas passing a physical on Wednesday.
Thomas, a nine-year NFL veteran, five-time Pro Bowl selection (2012-16) and former Super Bowl Champion (50), has played in 125 games (111 starts) and 10 postseason contests in his career (2010-18). He has compiled 665 receptions for 9,055 receiving yards (13.6 avg.) and 60 receiving touchdowns since being drafted with the 22nd overall pick in the 2010 Draft out of Georgia Tech. Thomas, who is also a two-time Associated Press All-Pro selection (2013-14), finishes his Broncos career as the franchise's leader in 100-yard receiving games (33) while ranking second in team history in receiving touchdowns, second in receiving yards and third in receptions. This season, Thomas (6-3, 229) has recorded 36 receptions for 402 yards (11.2 avg.) and three touchdowns in eight games with Denver.
Since entering the league in 2010, Thomas ranks third in the NFL in receptions, third in receiving yards and eighth in receiving touchdowns. He has recorded at least 75 receptions and 900 receiving yards in six straight seasons, which is the longest active streak in the NFL, and has played in 115 consecutive regular season games, which is the longest active streak among all NFL wide receivers. He joined Torry Holt (six), Marvin Harrison (five) and Antonio Brown (five) as the only players in NFL history with five consecutive seasons totaling at least 90 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards (2012-16). Thomas, 30, is also one of only four players in the league with at least 6,000 receiving yards and 40 receiving touchdowns since 2013, joining Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins, Steelers WR Antonio Brown and Bengals WR A.J. Green.
