Patriots Trading WR Demaryius Thomas To Jets For 6th-Rd Pick


Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Patriots are trading WR Demaryius Thomas to the Jets for a 2021 sixth-round pick on Tuesday.

Thomas will now be reunited with HC Adam Gase in New York.

The Patriots just signed WR Antonio Brown, which left them with seven receivers and created some questions about Thomas’ role in New England moving forward. 

Thomas, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2010. The Broncos traded Thomas to the Texans for fourth- and seventh-round picks before the deadline in 2018.

Houston released Thomas in a move that freed up $14 million of available cap space and he later signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the Patriots this past offseason. However, New England released him coming out of the preseason only to re-sign him soon after.

In 2018, Thomas appeared in 15 games for the Texans and Broncos and caught 59 passes for 677 yards receiving and five touchdowns.
