Demaryius Thomas to be released by Texans

Demaryius Thomas

Demaryius Thomas was improving by the week with the Houston Texans before he suffered a torn Achilles that ended his 2018 season, and it sounds like the six games he played with the team will be his only six.

James Palmer of NFL Network reports that the Texans are expected to release Thomas on Tuesday.

As Palmer noted, Thomas has already suffered a torn Achilles during his NFL career. He had a remarkably fast recovery the first time, but the road could be tougher now given that he is 31 years old.

Thomas finished the 2018 season with 677 yards and five touchdowns. It was the second consecutive season he failed to eclipse the 1,000-yard receiving mark after doing so the previous five years. The Texans will save $14 million against the salary cap in 2019 by moving on from Thomas.
