Von Miller reacts to Demaryius Thomas trade to Texans

  • Texans Bill O'Brien's parting words still sting Broncos QB Case Keenum

Leading up to the National Football League trade deadline, Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas felt there was a "50-50" chance that he would be traded. Sure enough, the Broncos announced on Monday that the perennial Pro Bowl wide receiver is being sent to Houston to play for the Texans. The Broncos shipped their longest-tenured player to the Houston Texans, just hours before the trade deadline. Hamilton is now recovering from a sprained MCL he suffered in the Broncos' Week 7 win over the Arizona Cardinals, while Patrick has played 60 snaps all season, 19 of those this past Sunday in Kansas City.

The season started with optimism. He may be double-teamed more often. This year, with Case Keenum struggling at quarterback, he's brought in just 36 passes for 402 yards.

Hamilton, as well as Patrick, are two other players the Broncos want to see more of down the stretch.

However, Keenum never clicked with his teammates and has been largely disappointing, already throwing three more interceptions this season than he threw all of previous year.

The Broncos (3-5) will host the Texans (5-3) on Sunday.

Trading Thomas may not be a death knell to the Broncos' already underwhelming season, but it does indicate that the organization is thinking that the season may be over.

Pep Guardiola says five teams in Premier League title race
One is to win games, but it is not the priority to win games. "What I think is (Tottenham chairman) Mr. (Daniel) Levy is not an easy guy to negotiate with".

Thomas, of course, was on the hook for $8.5 million this season ($4.5 million of which will be picked up by the Texans), and has a non-guaranteed $14 million base salary for the 2019 season.

The wide receivers are on the move. Plus, the Broncos got a fourth-round pick in return, which is a good exchange for an expensive, aging receiver.

Ironically, the Texans will travel to Denver in Week 9 as Thomas gets a chance to go up against the team that drafted him 22nd overall out of Georgia Tech in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Powerball results for 10/24/18; did anyone win the $602M jackpot?
The Virginia Lottery said in a statement that the chances of matching the first five numbers in Mega Millions are 1 in 12,607,306. The odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at 1 in 302.5 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball .

Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. Thomas, who in Denver was averaging 50.3 receiving yards per game with three scores on the season, had been given a rating of 2.0. Between this Thomas deal, the surprisingly productive rookie class, and the prudent management of the salary cap, I am very enthused about the Brian Gaine Era, thus far.
