Houston Texans take wide receiver Demaryius Thomas from Denver

Houston Texans take wide receiver Demaryius Thomas from Denver

The Houston Texans have acquired Demaryius Thomas from the Denver Broncos for a 2019 fourth-round pick, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Houston's interest in Thomas no doubt picked up with both their recent surge to the top of the AFC South standings, and the loss of starting wide receiver Will Fuller for the year. The Broncos will send a seventh-round pick to the Texans, along with Thomas, and get back a fourth- and seventh-rounder, ESPN.com detailed.

Week 9 of the National Football League season is nearly here and midway in the week the odds makers in Las Vegas have chosen the Denver Broncos to be the favorites in their game against the Houston Texans.

The season started with optimism. This year, with Case Keenum struggling at quarterback, he's brought in just 36 passes for 402 yards.

However, Keenum never clicked with his teammates and has been largely disappointing, already throwing three more interceptions this season than he threw all of a year ago.

The problem with trading stars for draft picks, Schlereth said, is that the Broncos would have to "hit on all the draft picks".

The Duchess told Hannah "Thank you for getting in touch" and "said she would read my letter that I gave her". They also found time to throw wellies (Wellington boots) as a part of a fun, "welly wanging contest".

In regards of cap space, the Texans will acquire $4.5 million for this season and a non-guaranteed $14 million for 2019.

The wide receivers are on the move.

Demaryius Thomas knew about the trade rumors, but he said he woke up Tuesday thinking about playing for the Broncos, the franchise that drafted him in 2010 and the only one he had been part of since.

Thomas, meanwhile, should also see a slight uptick, moving into the Houston passing game where Deshaun Watson will be throwing to him, as the second option to DeAndre Hopkins.
