The New England Patriots added some veteran depth at wide receiver on Tuesday.

The Houston Texans had acquired Demaryius Thomas in a trade with the Denver Broncos last October, and he appeared in seven games for Houston before tearing his left Achilles in a Week 16 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. He has played in 132 regular-season games with 118 starts and has 688 receptions for 9,330 yards and 62 touchdowns.

The Patriots lost out on one of their top free-agent targets, Adam Humphries, who signed with the Tennessee Titans.

The Patriots didn't announce the terms of the contract, but NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported it was a one-year deal worth up to $6 million. He played eight full seasons in Denver, winning a Super Bowl ring with the Broncos during the 2015 season.

Overall, Thomas earned four Pro Bowl selections with the Broncos, last punching his ticket in 2016 when he finished with 90 catches for 1,083 yards and five touchdowns. He said just prior to his Texans release that he wasn't thinking about retiring. In February, Thomas was involved in a one-vehicle auto accident in which two of his passengers were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He and two passengers were injured and taken to the hospital after his SUV went off the road and flipped end-over-end after hitting a median at more than 70 miles per hour - more than twice the speed limit.

A 6-foot-3 threat, Thomas is coming off a 59-catch, 677-yard season split between the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans, and comes to the Patriots while recovering from a significant Achilles injury suffered in a December 23 game for the Texans. He was fined $300, ordered to complete 50 hours of community service and received one year of supervised probation.
