The Denver Broncos have traded one of the best wide receivers in team history - Demaryius Thomas - to the Houston Texans.

Thomas, who has spent each of his nine seasons with the Broncos, was dealt to the Houston Texans in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.

The long-rumored move has finally come to fruition as the Texans met the Broncos' trade demands and picked up some much-needed help at receiver with wide receiver Will Fuller going down for the 2018 season with a knee injury. But his hefty salary-cap figure for 2019 ($17.533 million in what is the a year ago of his deal) and the emergence of rookie Courtland Sutton as a big-play threat had raised the possibility of Thomas being shipped elsewhere.

"He developed into an elite player over the years, establishing himself as one of the NFL's most productive, consistent and reliable wide receivers". He has recorded at least 75 receptions and 900 receiving yards in six straight seasons, which is the longest active streak in the National Football League, and has played in 115 consecutive regular season games, which is the longest active streak among all National Football League wide receivers.

As of September 30, the House Republican Campaign Committee had raised $3.1 million compared to the House Democrats' $379,146. Trump has remained focused on the elections, even in the wake of a series of tragedies that have stunned the nation.

Aside from ending Thomas's storied career in Denver, the trade also turns up the temperature of the hot water head coach Vance Joseph is in.

Deshaun Watson became the first of Thomas' new teammates to contact him, and the 30-year-old wideout said he appreciated that a young quarterback was so excited to play with him. Luckily for Thomas, he won't have to start looking for a house in Houston until next week, since the Broncos are actually hosting the Texans this coming Sunday.

According to OddsShark.com, the Broncos are -1 favorites, with Vegas basically saying the game is a coin flip as who will win, though the favorite designation went to Denver with them being the home team. Certainly, the timing is wild of this trade with those two battling head-to-head this Sunday at 2 p.m. MT.
