With Patriots offensive weapons exiting left and right - first, Rob Gronkowski's farewell to the game, which was followed by Chris Hogan leaving amicably for the Panthers - New England found its annual reclamation project in the longtime Bronco and former Texans wide receiver. He won a Super Bowl with the Broncos in 2015, but had just seven receptions on 21 targets that postseason.

In New England, Thomas will reunite with Josh McDaniels, the head coach who drafted him out of Georgia Tech back in 2010.

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. He established Denver's single-season record with 1,619 receiving yards in 2014.

A 6-foot-3 threat, Thomas is coming off a 59-catch, 677-yard season split between the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans, and comes to the Patriots while recovering from a significant Achilles injury suffered in a December 23 game for the Texans.

Thomas, 31, spent nine seasons with the Broncos before being dealt to the Houston Texans in October for a fourth-round pick.

Thomas joined Marvin Harrison and Jerry Rice as the only National Football League players with three consecutive 1,400-yard and 10-touchdown seasons from 2012 through the 2014 season. He was injured in the regular-season finale and was placed on injured reserve for the playoffs. He suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in Week 16. He started in two of three postseason games, including the Super Bowl LIII win vs. L.A. Rams and totaled 10 tackles, one sack and one pass defensed.
