The New England Patriots announced that they've signed former Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to a free agent contract Tuesday. Terms of the contract were not released. 

The signing of Thomas is a boost to a thin New England receiving corps. He'll also be reunited with former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels, the Patriots offensive coordinator. 

The four-time Pro Bowl selection and owner of many Broncos receiving records was traded in October 2018 to the Houston Texans for a fourth-round pick and a swap of seventh-round draft choices. Prior to his trade last season, Thomas had 36 catches for 402 yards and three touchdowns.
