New, comments

According to the rumor mill, the Texans might be looking for an immediate contributor to the offense.

It’s unusual for there to be so much chatter around the NFL trading deadline, mostly because so few trades happen during the regular season and only a handful of those are particularly noteworthy in their size. In my memory, the biggest one I’ve ever seen was a trade between Washington and Denver which sent Clinton Portis to the [POTATOES] in exchange for Champ Bailey going to Denver.

Speaking of Denver, it appears they may be trying to unload a certain wide receiver and the recipient of that player? Your Houston Texans, of course. You think if he were going to Chicago or something that I’d be writing about this?

According to Benjamin Allbright, who is well connected with the Denver sports scene, the Broncos are working on two trade possibilities. One of which involves the Houston Texans, the other is...well...New England, as if they need the friggin’ help.

With Will Fuller done for the season, Demaryius Thomas does fill a hole, although there’s some argument about which receiver would be the best fit for that hole. Stop giggling, already.

But as they say, beggars can’t be choosers and if Demaryius Thomas is the player that’s available, then that’s still a hell of a fix to the hole that Will Fuller’s torn ACL has left.

Nothing’s set in stone of course and things are, as they say, in flux, but the clock is ticking as the trade deadline ends tomorrow at 3 p.m. CDT, so all there is for us to do is sit and wait and hope that something comes of these talks.

Is there another receiver you’d want instead of Demaryius Thomas? Or a player at a different position. Let us know in the comments section.

UPDATE: Sometimes, the rumor mill spits out the truth. Demaryius Thomas is now a member of your Houston Texans.
