The Patriots are reportedly interested in trading for a wide receiver

The receiver is expected to be kept off the field on Monday night for "several series" - roughly the first quarter of the game, as punishment for tardiness, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Thomas and Deandre Hopkins could be the top targets. "I'll be able to play ball", Thomas said, via

The Houston Texans have agreed to acquire WR Demaryius Thomas and a 2019 seventh-round pick from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick and seventh-round pick.

Though there's emotional connection between the Broncos and Thomas (he's spent his first nine years in the National Football League with just the Broncos), and though trading him to New England would leave a bitter taste in the mouths of Denver fans, it might be the best scenario for all parties. At the age of 30, those opportunities are running low and Denver's championship window appears to have closed. The Broncos don't play the Patriots this year. "It's never easy when you trade a guy who's been a household name here for a long time and who's done a lot of great things, not only on the football field, but also in the community and is a good man". "But where we can make it up is with the youth, the young guys and getting them experience as this year continues to go". He has recorded 33 catches and three touchdowns this season.

If the Broncos were winning a lot of games and playing at a high level, Thomas would not be going anywhere. Tuesday Elway said the 6-foot-4, 216-pound Sutton offered a player similar in physical style as well as role in the offense as Thomas.
