The New England Patriots are in desperate need of some help in the passing game, and they are turning to a long-time rival to get it.
According to National Football League insider Field Yates, Thomas agreed to a deal with the New England Patriots.
Thomas, 31, is a veteran of nine National Football League seasons with the Denver Broncos (2010-18) and the Houston Texans (2018). In his final eight games with the Broncos, Thomas had 36 receptions for 402 yards and three TDs.
In adding Thomas, the Patriots pick up a player who can potentially replace the output of Chris Hogan after he signed with the Carolina Panthers.
Overall, Thomas earned four Pro Bowl selections with the Broncos, last punching his ticket in 2016 when he finished with 90 catches for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns. The guilty plea led to a vehicular assault charge - a felony - stemming from the same incident being dropped.
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. He was fined $300, ordered to complete 50 hours of community service and received one year of supervised probation.
Head coach Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots looks on prior to Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 03, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. His 665 catches rank third in team history behind Smith and Shannon Sharpe.
Thomas will be the fifth receiver in the Tom Brady era (since 2000) to sign with the Patriots after amassing five or more 1,000-yard seasons elsewhere.
