A trade has finally happened for the Houston Texans and they've not only improved their depth at wide receiver, but they've changed the entire game in the AFC for the remainder of the season.

The Denver Broncos have parted ways with one of its most prolific wide receivers in franchise history, shipping Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans ahead of Tuesday's National Football League trade deadline.

In exchange for the contract-year wideout, Denver received a fourth-round pick and will swap their seventh-rounder for Houston's.

"Demaryius had an incredible run here and we can't thank him enough for everything he's meant to the Broncos", general manager John Elway said in a statement.

One of the primary reasons that Denver was willing to trade Thomas, who has been with the organization since being drafted in 2010, is because it opens the door for more playing time for Courtland Sutton.

"We were not hell-bent on trading Demaryius, " Elway said. Thomas has 36 receptions for 402 yards and three touchdowns in 2018, and is signed through next season at $14 million.

But the Texans found a willing trade partner in Denver.

Meanwhile, Kalambayi, a sixth-round rookie out of Stanford, recorded a season-high five tackles during last weeks 42-23 victory over the Miami Dolphins and has shown promise in recent weeks on special teams.

Thomas, 30, has the second-most receiving yards (9,055) and touchdown catches (60) in Broncos history, trailing Rod Smith in both categories.
