In another surprise move the New England Patriots traded Demaryius Thomas to the New York Jets for a 6th round pick in 2021. A surprise move within the division.
Thomas didn’t even make the Patriots’ official 53-man roster — they wanted to avoid guaranteeing his contract — and they were still able to flip him for a sixth-rounder eight days after re-signing him. The Patriots will stay winning. Bill Belichick is moving on because there was no longer space on the roster following Antonio Brown’s shock acquisition. In New York, Thomas will be reuniting with coach Adam Gase, who was in Denver for the best years of Thomas’ career in 2013-14.
