The Jets acquired receiver Demaryius Thomas from the Patriots in early September. He could return for another season.

The Jets are “still talking” with the free agent, Connor Hughes of TheAthletic.com reports.

It might be Thomas’ only chance to continue his career.

The Jets could use him if Thomas has anything left. Breshad Perriman and rookie Denzel Mims likely start on the outside with Jamison Crowder in the slot. Braxton Berrios and Vyncint Smith are the main backups.

Thomas, 32, played 11 games for the Jets last season, making 36 catches for 433 yards and a touchdown.

In 10 seasons, Thomas has 9,763 receiving yards and 63 touchdowns.

  1. I mean. Why not? With no offseason program you’re not likely to get even that level of production from some undrafted rookie whose upside is limited anyway.

    I also don’t understand why they don’t bring back Kelvin Beachum, who was far from the worst starting LT in the league last year. He’d be a cheap veteran swing tackle who knows both the system and the guard next to him.

  2. Demaryius Thomas’s situation is Dez Bryant 2.0 – Great receiver back-in-the-day. Every NFL roster is about churning the roster. Gotta have faith in the scouting personnel. But I just don’t see the great Demaryius having an impact.

  3. Thomas is a good veteran WR and can help mentor the younger guys. Clearly his best days are behind him, but he can still be somewhat productive as a possession WR in 4 and 5 WR sets. Sign him already.

  4. Jets> So, DT, are you younger and faster this year?

    DT> Of course I am.

    Jets – We are still talking.

    It wasn’t just DTs slowness, he was dropping key passes. No way I’d want him even at the vets minimum. I’d rather go with a strete free agent with some upside.

  5. At one time DT had HOF potential but either he lost his drive or just couldnt get over distractions, but his career could have been better. Terrell Owens dropped passes too but kept his hunger for being the best till the end. Thomas couldnt do that …

  6. I feel our young core is strong in WR, its not like back in the day. These kids are special, and I believe there’s a lot of talent in the JETS this year.

  7. DT is a deep threat but Darnold has an average arm and couldn’t connect last year.

  8. Thank you for what you did for us in Denver. Still rooting for you … unless you play somewhere else in the AFC West – lol
