Several Broncos players expressed such sentiment Tuesday following the team's decision to trade the veteran wide receiver to the Houston Texans during the National Football League trade deadline. For Denver, which reportedly had been looking to deal Thomas for weeks amid the emergence of rookie receiver Courtland Sutton, it's a way to gain draft capital in exchange for what had become an expendable player.

Thomas had 36 catches for 402 yards and three touchdowns this season. Demaryius Thomas was getting 7 targets a game, so most of those should now go to Sutton.

Despite the fact that Thomas is a team legend and will be in the Ring of Fame as soon as he's done playing, this was the right move for the Broncos, who would have probably had to release Thomas at season's end anyway. The Broncos shipped their longest-tenured player to the Houston Texans, just hours before the trade deadline. He also missed the first three games of the 2017 season with a broken collarbone. It was especially evident with Fuller, who scored 11 touchdowns in the 11 games he played with Watson, and was on pace for over 1,000 yards receiving this season. In trading Thomas to Houston, Denver saves $3.5 million in cap space this year and $14 million in cap space next year.

Both the Texans and Broncos have had their ups-and-downs this season with the Texans being 5-3 overall and the Broncos entering the game at 3-5, losing to the Kansas City Chiefs, 30-23 last Sunday. They willfully got a little worse for 2018 in order to get better sometime down the road. So the gambling public is far less bullish on Denver than they were Sunday night.
