Thomas, 33, 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 and he later signed a one-year, $6 million deal with the Patriots. From there, New England traded Thomas to the Jets for a 2021 sixth-round pick coming out of the preseason in 2019.
For his career, Thomas played in 143 games over 10 seasons for the Broncos, Texans and Jets. He recorded 724 receptions for 9,763 yards (13.5 YPC) and 63 touchdowns. He was a four-time Pro Bowler and was twice named to the second-team AP All-Pro team.
