New England Patriots: Why Demaryius Thomas signing isn’t so exciting

Demaryius Thomas Patriots

The New England Patriots signed wide receiver Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday, the club announced.

He caught 23 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns in seven games after his trade to the Texans.

Thomas, 31, spent nine seasons with the Broncos before being dealt to the Houston Texans in October for a fourth-round pick. His season came to an end in Week 16 as a result of a torn Achilles, so it remains to be seen how well he recovers from the devastating injury. Appearing in 15 games between the two teams, Thomas finished the year with 59 receptions for 677 yards and five touchdowns.

The club could have brought back Chris Hogan, who was an unrestricted free agent, but wasn't aggressive in doing so.

Along with giving Tom Brady another proven, veteran target, Demayius Thomas is very familiar with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and the offense he likes to run.

That injury likely made Thomas a flawless low-risk, high-reward addition for the Patriots, as his rehab and uncertainty at 31 years old will nearly certainly keep the Patriots from any sort of significant financial commitment on this contract.

He pleaded guilty to reckless driving and, as part of a plea deal, had the felony charge of vehicular assault dropped.

Thomas owned a five-year 1,000-yard receiving season streak that spanned through 2016 campaigns and also earned five consecutive Pro Bowl berths during that time. Thomas has the second-most receiving yards (9,055) and touchdown catches (60) in Broncos history, trailing Rod Smith in both categories. The list includes Reggie Wayne (8), Randy Moss (7), Chad Ochocinco (7), Joey Galloway (6).
