Patriots set to sign Demaryius Thomas

Houston Texans wide receiver Demaryius Thomas celebrates his touchdown catch during the second half of an NFL football game against the Tennessee Titans Monday Nov. 26 2018 in Houston

Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has found a new team, and it's one that Broncos fans will be sad to see him join.

Thomas will reunite with a familiar face in New England.

Thomas' deal with the Patriots could be worth up to $6 million, according to Ian Rapoport.

After Week 8 last season, the Broncos traded Thomas to the Houston Texans in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick. Additionally, he is coming off an Achilles injury that could make him unavailable come the start of the 2019 National Football League season.

A 6-foot-3 threat, Thomas is coming off a 59-catch, 677-yard season split between the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans, and comes to the Patriots while recovering from a significant Achilles injury suffered in a December 23 game for the Texans.

Fast forward a couple seasons and the one-year deal the team agreed upon to add Thomas to a mostly unproven wide receiver group doesn't seem so exciting to most fans. He said just prior to his Texans release that he wasn't thinking about retiring. Overall, he played in 15 games and hauled in 59 receptions for 677 yards and five touchdowns.

Now, there is still the draft and a possibility the team can still trade for a top receiver.

He'll serve as veteran insurance as the Patriots await the fate of wideout Josh Gordon, indefinitely suspended by the league for violating its substance abuse policy.

If healthy, Thomas, who played under Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels early in his career in Denver, projects as a starter in New England's offense alongside Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman. He also established Denver's single-season record with 1,619 yards receiving in 2014.
