2019 Houston Texans Offseason Tracker: Trades, Free Agent Signings, NFL Draft Picks
This page is for the Texans’ trades since the end of the NFL Trade Deadline last season if 2019 draft picks or later were involved with any trade.
Oct. 30, 2018
• Texans traded 2019 4th Round Pick (No. 125) and ’19 7th Round Pick (No. 237) to Denver Broncos for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and ’19 7th Round Pick (No. 220).
This trade worked out well for the Texans for a few weeks, but overall the trade didn’t help matters much as Thomas ruptured his Achilles and was unable to finish the regular season and help in the playoffs like the Texans had hoped for.
At the time, the trade made a lot of sense with Will Fuller tearing his ACL in the previous game, but overall the trade didn’t work out as planned. Thomas has since been released by the Texans and has become a free agent as he continues to recover from the injury suffered in Week 16 against the Philadelphia Eagles. While with the Texans (seven games), Thomas totaled 23 receptions for 275 yards and two touchdowns.
Losing a fourth-round pick was worth the risk at the time, but it will be interesting to see who the Broncos select with what will be the 126th overall pick.
