Nearly a decade after arriving in Denver as a first-round pick, receiver Demaryius Thomas could be coming back.

Per a league source, the Broncos could be bringing Thomas back to town.

If it happens, Thomas will be working for a new coaching staff in a new offense. But plenty of other things will be familiar to the man who played for the Broncos until he was traded during the 2018 season to the Texans.

Thomas, who suffered a torn Achilles tendon last year while playing for Houston, was cut on Saturday by the Patriots. In 10 NFL seasons, Thomas has caught 688 passes for 9,330 yards and 62 touchdowns.

If Thomas returns, one of the Denver receivers who made the initial 53-man roster would be in danger of being released. The current depth chart consists of Emmanuel Sanders, Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, Tim Patrick, Juwann Renfree, and River Cracraft.

  1. I’d take Thomas over every guy listed there, maybe Sammuels,
    I was hoping we’d keep him, and am hoping the fact we didn’t means we’ve got guys but he really looked good

  2. At this point in his career, it could very well come down to not coaching or loyalties or even money, but playing for a consensus contender with a consensus elite QB.

  3. According to reporter Mike Giardi, “Both Thomas and the Patriots have interest in a return at a later date.” Since Thomas is a veteran free agent, he is not subject to the waiver wire and can sign with any team he chooses. The Patriots are legendary for cutting veteran players in order to protect rookies who would be subject tto waivers and thing, after everyone else has finalized their 53-man roster, bringing them back.

  4. Vikings are looking for a solid 3rd receiver. Demaryius and Gary Kubiak have worked together in the past. Rick should bring him in for a workout.

  5. Bill has a habit of cutting & rehiring. At this stage it’s no better than 50/50 he’s actually gone.
