Antonio Brown has already had an impact on the New England Patriots’ roster.

With Brown’s arrival, the Patriots are sending wide receiver Demaryius Thomas to the New York Jets for a 2021 sixth-round draft pick.

Thomas signed a one-year contract with the Patriots this past offseason after tearing his Achilles late last season. He was one of the football club’s Week 1 inactives.

This will be the veteran’s fourth team in the past 12-months. Last October, the Denver Broncos, where he spent his first eight and a change seasons of his careers, traded him to the Houston Texas.

During the 2018 campaign, Thomas caught 59 passes for 677 yards and crossed the goal line five times for touchdowns, his lowest output since 2011.

Thomas, who becomes expendable with Brown’s signing, leaves a Patriots roster that was deep with talented receivers will now join a young Jets roster. He will compete for snaps behind Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa and Jamison Crowder but will add some needed veteran leadership.

New York Jets head coach Adam Gase was critical of his wide receivers’ performance in their 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. On Monday, while he didn’t name names, he told the media he was not happy with their route running.

The 31-year old Thomas is now the oldest wideout on the team.

The trade between the Pats and Jets was a historic one as Bill Belichick had made trades with every other team in the league except the Jets prior to today.
