Roster News: Jets trade for Demaryius Thomas

A surprise move here:

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of this trade is the fact that the Jets would deal with the Patriots. Somehow it seems unlikely they'd give up a player they thought could help their rivals for a measly late round pick.

Thomas, who of course has a history with Adam Gase from his time in Denver, is undoubtedly past his prime despite only being 31 years old. His numbers have been sinking over the past few years and he tore his Achilles in December.

However, he does bring an element of size and physicality that the current receiving corps arguably lacks.
