The Patriots certainly had a serious need for a veteran pass-catcher, with Thomas now Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Bruce Ellington, Maurice Harris, Demoun Patterson and Braxton Berrios on the New England depth chart. 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.
Thomas' deal with the Patriots could be worth up to $6 million, according to Ian Rapoport.
Thomas split the 2018 campaign between the Broncos and the Texans, with Denver trading him to Houston midway through the season. He suffered a season-ending torn Achilles tendon in December and was released by Houston in February.
Thomas appeared in 15 games for the Broncos and Texans, notching 59 caught passes for 677 yards and five touchdowns.
Jason Kenney’s United Conservative Party projected to win majority government in Alberta

Black hole snapped for first time
The one that scientists imaged lies some 55 million light-years from Earth at the center of a galaxy called Messier 87 (M87). This first view of a black hole was, like early photographs of the Earth from space, an iconic and emotional visual.
The club could have brought back Chris Hogan, who was an unrestricted free agent, but wasn't aggressive in doing so.
He pleaded guilty to reckless driving and, as part of a plea deal, had the felony charge of vehicular assault dropped.
The move reunites Thomas with offensive coordinator and former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels.
Thomas spent the first eight and a half seasons of his career in Denver, where he posted five straight seasons with 1,000-plus receiving yards. His 665 catches rank third in team history behind Smith and Shannon Sharpe.
Translation: After Edelman, the Patriots really don't have much at the wide receiver position for next season.
