The Houston Texans have acquired Demaryius Thomas from the Denver Broncos for a 2019 fourth-round pick, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. After news broke of Denver dealing Thomas and a seventh-round draft pick to the Texans in exchange for fourth- and seventh-round picks, Broncos linebacker sent this comically heartfelt message to Thomas via Twitter.

Sanders has been enjoying his second-best season as a Broncos player this year; with 606 yards and three touchdowns through eight games. It is expected that Sutton will receive more playing time in Thomas's absence. He has recorded at least 75 receptions and 900 receiving yards in six straight seasons, which is the longest active streak in the National Football League, and has played in 115 consecutive regular season games, which is the longest active streak among all National Football League wide receivers.

Thomas, meanwhile, should also see a slight uptick, moving into the Houston passing game where Deshaun Watson will be throwing to him, as the second option to DeAndre Hopkins.

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

The Greens placed third, just barely trailing behind the Social Democrats with 19.5 percent of the votes. That marked a big drop from the 38.3 percent the CDU won at the last Hesse election, in 2013.

Thomas has played his entire nine-year career with the Broncos.

The Texans have a need at wide receiver after Will Fuller was lost for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, suffered during the team's win over the Dolphins on Thursday night. The Broncos shipped their longest-tenured player to the Houston Texans, just hours before the trade deadline.

The Broncos (3-5) will host the Texans (5-3) on Sunday. Certainly, the timing is wild of this trade with those two battling head-to-head this Sunday at 2 p.m. MT.
