The team announced that it has agreed to a deal with Demaryius Thomas, a longtime member of the Denver Broncos.

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

According to National Football League insider Field Yates, Thomas agreed to a deal with the New England Patriots.

Thomas trails only Broncos legend Rod Smith in the franchise's all-time ranks for the receiving yards (9,055) and touchdown catches (60). He played seven games with Houston following a mid-season trade, catching 23 passes for two touchdowns before an Achilles injury ended his year in the final week of the regular season.

The Patriots will once again enter a new National Football League season as the defending Super Bowl champs, coming off their 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII.

The club could have brought back Chris Hogan, who was an unrestricted free agent, but wasn't aggressive in doing so.

"I can still play, man", he said. He and two passengers were injured and taken to the hospital after his SUV went off the road and flipped end-over-end after hitting a median at more than 70 miles per hour - more than twice the speed limit.

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. He was fined $300, ordered to complete 50 hours of community service and received one year of supervised probation. Josh McDaniels, who coached the Broncos in 2009 and most of the 2010 season, has served as the Patriots' offensive coordinator since 2012 in his second stint in Foxborough. His 665 catches rank third in team history behind Smith and Shannon Sharpe.
