Texans agree to acquire WR Demaryius Thomas from Broncos

Texans agree to acquire WR Demaryius Thomas from Broncos

Via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Gordon will be kept off the field for "several series", or likely the first quarter, of the Patriots' Monday night game against the Buffalo Bills.

Gordon, 27, has seen a rapid increase in playing time since being acquired by the Patriots in a mid-September trade.

The Patriots may be looking to add another wide receiver, and he's reportedly a target.

Gordon would not only start the game but played in 64 of the 78 offensive snaps taken by the Patriots offense, gaining 42 yards on four catches in the process of the Pats 25-6 victory. In response to Rapoport's tweet, Tate responded, "What you talking about Willis?"

On Monday night, the rumors of Thomas being shipped out to New England began to heat up again when reports of the Patriots disciplining wide receiver Josh Gordon surfaced. The 30-year-old will be a free agent at season's end, and the Lions - who are in the thick of a playoff race in the NFC North - are unlikely to give him up unless they get overwhelmed by a trade offer, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Trading receiver Demaryius Thomas made a lot of sense for the Broncos. The Patriots in February convinced McDaniels to turn down the Indianapolis Colts' head coaching job, after he already had accepted it, to stay in New England. So far this season Tate has caught 44 passes for 517 yards and three touchdowns for the 3-4 Lions.

The Patriots' wide-receiver depth chart now consists of Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Matthew Slater.
