Demaryius Thomas thought his days in Denver might be numbered. The receiver was correct.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Broncos are trading Thomas to the Houston Texans in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round draft pick, per sources informed of the deal. The teams are also swapping seventh-rounders, per Rapoport.
Thomas is the first big-name player to move on the final day trades can be executed. The deadline for swaps is 4 p.m. ET.
Thomas will immediately face his former team when the Texans host the Broncos on Sunday.
