Denver Broncos trade WR Demaryius Thomas to Houston Texans

The Texans will be in Denver Sunday afternoon to take on the Broncos.

Leading up to the National Football League trade deadline, Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas felt there was a "50-50" chance that he would be traded.

"We were not hell bent on trading Demaryius, " Elway said. "Obviously, the Pittsburgh one is the biggest one I think that stands out that we all remember, but he was a guy that was very productive and consistent for a long, long time, and was healthy most of the time".

The Broncos acquired a fourth-round draft pick from the Texans and the teams will also swap seventh-round picks.

Thomas, 30, has been to the Pro Bowl four times since entering the league in 2010, a career in which he's caught 665 passes for more than 9,000 yards and 60 touchdowns. "Plus it's a good spot for Demaryius". The Texans, 5-3, are now sitting atop the AFC South and were in need of another wide receiver after Will Fuller suffered a torn ACL in a win over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday. According to ESPN's Mike Clay, Fuller had a 22 percent target share (6.3 per game) in his six full games this season for the Texans.

The Texans have also had trouble keeping rookie receiver Keke Coutee on the field.

Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas of the Broncos appeals to the referee for a touchdown call after making a catch on the edge of the end zone against the Seahawks at Broncos Stadium at Mile High on September 9, 2018.
