Demaryius Thomas has departed the Denver Broncos, traded to the Houston Texans ahead of the NFL's trade deadline.

Thomas is second on the Broncos in receptions (36) and receiving yards (402) and tied for the team lead in receiving touchdowns (three) this season. "He developed into an elite player over the years, establishing himself as one NFL's most productive, consistent and reliable wide receivers".

Thomas will have the chance to face his former team in just five days, as the Texans face the Broncos in Mile High Stadium on November 4.

Despite the fact that Thomas is a team legend and will be in the Ring of Fame as soon as he's done playing, this was the right move for the Broncos, who would have probably had to release Thomas at season's end anyway.

He had five consecutive years of 1,000-plus yards receiving between 2012-16, and just missed that milestone last season with 949 yards.

Demaryius Thomas' departure from Denver has brought sorrow to his former teammates.

One of these apparently included wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.

Thomas has played his entire nine-year career with the Broncos. According to OverTheCap, Houston is slated to have more than $91 million in projected cap space, so taking on Thomas is nothing to worry about.

Below are grades for both the Texans and the Broncos in the Thomas trade. That can't be great for team morale, and for what it's worth, the betting line on the game has moved from Broncos -2.5 to a pick 'em.

The New England Patriots may have done nothing on National Football League trade deadline day, and after a Monday night that came with rampant speculation that the Patriots were looking for a 'premier wideout, ' but it was not for a lack of trying.
