Broncos Trade Demaryius Thomas To Texans

Texans Bill O'Brien's parting words still sting Broncos QB Case Keenum

Houston Texans have acquired wide receiver Demaryius Thomas from the Denver Broncos for a fourth-round pick and a swap of seventh-round picks.

After watching the Oakland Raiders get a first-round pick for Amari Cooper, much of Broncos Country is outraged that Thomas fetched only a fourth-round pick, but that's the unfortunate diminished value with a player who is going to cost a team almost $20 million over the next two years.

Thomas had acknowledged rumours of a trade in recent weeks, guessing there was a "50-50" chance it would happen, although he wanted to remain in Denver. Denver has missed the playoffs the last two seasons, and it looks like they will again this year, too. The team's smothering defense had been stifling opponents in past seasons, and many fans and pundits thought all that was missing was stability at the quarterback position.

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

This isn't going to be a game that will see a dominate team on either said, but most likely a game where it will come down to who plays the best in the fourth quarter as the one-point difference by the odds makers states at the mid-way point of the week.

Trading Thomas may not be a death knell to the Broncos' already underwhelming season, but it does indicate that the organization is thinking that the season may be over.

Little Mix Release Official Statement About Nicki Minaj & Cardi B Drama
We can talk about it, or we can fight it out. "I'm exhausted of the f--g whole internet s-t, I'm exhausted of the interview s-t". It looks like Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have finally chose to call truce and put an end to their brutal back and forth.

Not mentioned in that press release was Thomas' contractual situation, in which the Texans are on the hook for the remainder of his $4,500,000 salary this season, with a non-guaranteed 2019 salary of $14,000,000 on the books for 2019.

Elsewhere in the National Football League, veteran wide receiver Brandon Marshall was released by the Seattle Seahawks and is now a free agent.

Thomas was drafted by the Broncos with the 22nd overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Emmanuel Sanders, who is enjoying a career year, now holds the role as the team's unquestioned number-one wide receiver.

Listen to Sean Pendergast on SportsRadio 610 from 2 to 6 p.m. weekdays.

Miller posted this on Instagram after Thomas was traded as a "goodbye" of sorts. Joseph should be anxious, as he has an 8-16 record through one and a half seasons as the team's head coach.
