Demaryius Thomas Patriots Patriots add Demaryius Thomas to thin receiving corps

Thomas split his 2018 season with the Broncos and Houston Texans, finishing the year with 59 receptions, 677 receiving yards and five touchdowns. He suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in Week 16.

Thomas trails only Broncos legend Rod Smith in the franchise's all-time ranks for the receiving yards (9,055) and touchdown catches (60).

The Patriots lost out on one of their top free-agent targets, Adam Humphries, who signed with the Tennessee Titans.

The Montrose, Ga. native then went on to make three straight Pro Bowls, with his best season coming in 2014 when he snared 111 balls for 1,619 yards while reaching the end zone 11 times. Thomas agreed to a one-year deal with the Patriots worth up to $6 million, NFL.com reports.

In adding Thomas, the Patriots pick up a player who can potentially replace the output of Chris Hogan after he signed with the Carolina Panthers. He said just prior to his Texans release that he wasn't thinking about retiring.

"It's going to be a great challenge, but I think I'm ready for it", Brady says in the call. Thomas was released by Houston on February 12, 2019. He and two passengers were injured and taken to the hospital after his SUV went off the road and flipped end-over-end after hitting a median at more than 70 miles per hour - more than twice the speed limit.

Thomas, 31, is a veteran of nine National Football League seasons with the Denver Broncos (2010-18) and the Houston Texans (2018).

Thomas recently pleaded guilty to a careless driving charge in connection to a February auto crash, according to the Houston Chronicle. His 665 catches rank third in team history behind Smith and Shannon Sharpe.
