Texans WR Demaryius Thomas told reporters on Sunday that he isn’t thinking about retirement, despite suffering a season-ending Achilles injury.
“My main priority right now is getting back healthy,” Thomas said, via the Houston Chronicle. “I can still play, man. I’m not thinking about retirement. I just don’t know where it will be.”
Thomas, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2010. He’s entering the final of his five-year, $70 million contract that included $43.5 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $14 million for the 2019 season.
The Broncos picked up Thomas’ $4 million option last March before trading him to the Texans for fourth- and seventh-round picks before the deadline.
In 2018, Thomas had appeared in 14 games for the Broncos and Texans and caught 53 passes for 618 yards receiving and five touchdowns.
