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

During his brief stint in Houston, he caught 23 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns.

The contract is for one-year with a signing bonus of $150K and $1.2 million in base salary and he has the chance to earn more through incentives and bonuses, a source told ESPN's Field Yates. Additionally, he is coming off an Achilles injury that could make him unavailable come the start of the 2019 National Football League season.

He finished last season with the Texans after a trade-deadline deal sent him to Houston from Denver.

The move reunites Thomas with offensive coordinator and former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels.


The 31-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Georgia Tech, was originally selected by the Broncos in the first round (22nd pick overall) of the 2010 NFL Draft.

One passenger reportedly suffered serious injuries when Thomas' vehicle rolled over, just days after he was released by the Texans. He said just prior to his Texans release that he wasn't thinking about retiring.

Now, there is still the draft and a possibility the team can still trade for a top receiver.

With the Patriots losing Rob Gronkowski to retirement and Cordarrelle Patterson to free agency, not to mention Josh Gordon to an indefinite suspension, Thomas seems like a solid low-risk, high-reward pickup. Four consecutive seasons of over 1300 yards receiving certainly proves that, but on the downside of his career, the chemistry or lack thereof with Tom Brady will determine if he can at least be effective in the Patriots offense.
