Demaryius Thomas looking for a place to play

Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas‘ name hasn’t popped up in conjunction with any teams this offseason, but that’s not because Thomas has decided to call it a career.

Thomas was a guest on 104.3 The Fan on Wednesday and said, via Nicki Jhabvala of, that he wants to play an 11th NFL season. Thomas added that he feels good physically and that he wants to reach 10,000 career receiving yards.

Thomas signed with the Patriots last offseason, but was traded to the Jets in early September. He played in 11 games and caught 36 passes for 433 yards and a touchdown.

That left him with 9,763 career receiving yards. The vast majority of those yards came in eight-plus seasons with the Broncos, who traded him to the Texans in October 2018. Thomas tore his Achilles that December, which contributed to Houston releasing him after the end of the regular season.

  1. Pats took the chance on Brown last season and of course that turned out to be a big mistake. Wish they had kept Thomas, at least he would have given Brady another serviceable receiver to go with Edelman

  2. My guess is that he’s D-U-N done unless he’s open to the veteran minimum with nothing guaranteed.

  3. Ehhh…Had a 5-6yr run with Peyton when he was a top 5-7 receiver. Solid player for a decent while but a complete shell of himself now. Super slow now, drops a lot of passes, basically an abomination of the guy that cooked the Steelers with Tebow in the playoffs which sadly seems like 20yrs ago

    Signs with the Pats, traded to the Bears for a 5th.

    Sorry bud those days are over

  5. Tebow broke passing records with DT, why couldn’t Sam Darnold do the same?

  6. I agree with some in that the Eagles would be a good spot for him. He can help contribute to the WR receiving core of new picks they are surely going to obtain. He won’t be the elite WR, but can be very positive influence overall in that locker room.

    His ship has sailed. A torn achilles is the kiss of death for a receiver.

    *Emmanuel Sanders enters the room*

  8. I could see the Jets bringing him back on a one year deal if they don’t get what they want at WR in the draft. He did some good things last year.

  9. Thomas did a good solid job with the Jets last year. If we need another WR to make plays & mentor (probably) 2 rookies, he’d be a great choice.

  10. He looked pretty good with stidham getting him the ball maybe the Pat’s reach out to him again.
