After a lengthy run with the Denver Broncos, followed by a brief stop with the Houston Texans late last season, Thomas joined the Pats to provide some depth in a position that New England has none in.
The Patriots announced the deal Tuesday, but Thomas gave it the only stamp approval needed Wednesday, sharing a photoshopped image of himself in a Patriots uniform complete with an emoji for the caption.
There’s plenty of upside in bringing Thomas aboard, as he had some prolific seasons in Denver. But he’s coming off an Achilles injury suffered late last season, so it’s not a sure thing he’ll return to that form.
