The Denver Broncos traded away long-time and beloved wide receiver Demaryius Thomas Tuesday morning, hours before the trade deadline in exchange for a fourth-round pick and it was received with disappointment and anger on social media from fans and players.
"It was hard, it's always hard", Elway said of the conversation - but what the Broncos could get for Thomas now in compensation made the trade a reality.
Gordon, 27, has seen a rapid increase in playing time since being acquired by the Patriots in a mid-September trade.
Thomas, a nine-year National Football League veteran, five-time Pro Bowl selection (2012-16) and former Super Bowl Champion (50), has played in 125 games (111 starts) and 10 postseason contests in his career (2010-18). Thomas will join Houston, and play his now former team the Denver Broncos on Sunday. Belichick has pushed the Gordon tardiness rumors to the side, but can we believe him? He doesn't hit the market until 2020.

The Patriots have some history with similar in-game disciplinary actions. In eight games this season, the 30-year old WR has just 36 receptions for 402 yards and three touchdowns.
Thomas would be an instant hit for the Patriots and at no expense to the Broncos other than watching one of their beloved players excel in a better situation.
Not a bad way to spend your pro career after paying dues with the triple option offense at Georgia Tech. The trade is contingent upon Thomas passing a physical on Wednesday.
