Houston Texans: Sterling Shepard, 5 possible WR trades
4. Demaryius Thomas
If the Houston Texans want a former Super Bowl champion veteran wide receiver to join the roster and really help take coverage pressure off DeAndre Hopkins, then Demaryius Thomas could be the man with all the answers.
The Texans are in trouble without Will Fuller with his ACL injury, and for the Texans to overcome that hit for the rest of this season and keep their offense afloat, then they just might have to give next week’s opponent the Denver Broncos a phone call, text or email to see where they stand with the veteran wide receiver.
Houston needs solid depth at wide receiver, and Thomas could provide that. This season with former Texans quarterback Case Keenum as his starting quarterback, Thomas has 33 receptions for 372 yards and three touchdowns.
If Thomas were to be paired up with a quarterback like Deshaun Watson — who just threw five touchdown passes against the Miami Dolphins on Thursday Night Football — the Texans wouldn’t miss a step. Thomas would also have a better chance to make the playoffs this season, as the AFC South isn’t as tough as the AFC West is with the Kansas City Chiefs dominating over there.
