Pats bolster thin WR unit with Thomas signing
5:59 PM ET
The team announced the moved Tuesday, less than a week after it had hosted Thomas on a free-agent visit.
Thomas, 31, was acquired by the Texans from the Denver Broncos just before last season’s trade deadline. He suffered a season-ending torn Achilles tendon in December and was released by Houston in February.
As New England’s boss moves closer to the record for NFL coaching victories, the end date for his coaching career seems murkier than ever.
While giving the OK for 11 new helmets, the NFL has ended a one-year grace period for 32 players, including Tom Brady, who were still wearing lower-performing models.
He caught 23 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns in seven games after his trade to the Texans. Between the two teams, Thomas finished 2018 with 59 catches for 677 yards and five touchdowns.
