Thomas signs with Patriots

Houston Texans wide receiver Demaryius Thomas celebrates his touchdown catch during the second half of an NFL football game against the Tennessee Titans Monday Nov. 26 2018 in Houston

The Patriots have signed wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and re-signed defensive back Jonathan Jones, the team announced Tuesday evening.

The New England Patriots are in desperate need of some help in the passing game, and they are turning to a long-time rival to get it.

Thomas trails only Broncos legend Rod Smith in the franchise's all-time ranks for the receiving yards (9,055) and touchdown catches (60).

Thomas agreed to a one-year deal with the Patriots worth up to $6 million, NFL.com reports. 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.

After Week 8 last season, the Broncos traded Thomas to the Houston Texans in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick.

Emery urges Ramsey to make a major impact for Arsenal before leaving
Javi Gracia insists Troy Deeney's elbow did not merit a red card against Arsenal in Watford's 1-0 defeat at Vicarage Road . It was an important game for us, he knew it.

Last season, he started the first eight games of the year for Denver, finishing with 36 receptions for 402 yards and three touchdowns, before being trading to Houston, where he started in seven games and finished with 23 receptions for 275 yards and two touchdowns.

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 was arrested February 27 and charged with vehicular assault (a felony), reckless driving and driving without proof of insurance in connection with an accident that occurred February 16 in downtown Denver.

A former first-round pick, Thomas spent his first eight-plus National Football League seasons with the Broncos, including a stint under former Denver head coach and current Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

Thomas will be the fifth receiver in the Tom Brady era (since 2000) to sign with the Patriots after amassing five or more 1,000-yard seasons elsewhere.
