Hours before Tuesday's National Football League trade deadline hit, the Eagles traded for Detroit's Golden Tate and the Texans for Denver's Demaryius Thomas. This season, he had 36 catches for 402 yards and three TDs in eight games. For Denver, which reportedly had been looking to deal Thomas for weeks amid the emergence of rookie receiver Courtland Sutton, it's a way to gain draft capital in exchange for what had become an expendable player. The Texans, 5-3, are now sitting atop the AFC South and were in need of another wide receiver after Will Fuller suffered a torn ACL in a win over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday. But his hefty salary-cap figure for 2019 ($17.533 million in what is the previous year of his deal) and the emergence of rookie Courtland Sutton as a big-play threat had raised the possibility of Thomas being shipped elsewhere. The speed that made Thomas' NFL career has diminished, but that doesn't mean he can't be effective as a target for Deshaun Watson.
