The New England Patriots signed wide receiver Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday, the club announced.

The Patriots certainly had a serious need for a veteran pass-catcher, with Thomas now Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Bruce Ellington, Maurice Harris, Demoun Patterson and Braxton Berrios on the New England depth chart.

First of all, Thomas is on the tail end of his career in which his offensive numbers have declined steadily since that 2016 season in which he caught 90 passes for 1083 yards.

A source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that the deal is for one year and worth up to $6 million. Additionally, he is coming off an Achilles injury that could make him unavailable come the start of the 2019 National Football League season. But coming to New England will reunite him with Josh McDaniels, his head coach in Denver during his rookie year, and more importantly, means he'll have Tom Brady throwing him the football.

The Broncos traded Thomas to Houston just before the trade deadline last season but he played in just three games for the Texans before the season-ending injury in Week 16. Thomas, 31, was released by the Texans in February.

One passenger reportedly suffered serious injuries when Thomas' auto rolled over, just days after he was released by the Texans.

Thomas recently pleaded guilty to a careless driving charge in connection to a February vehicle crash, according to the Houston Chronicle. Appearing in 15 games between the two teams, Thomas finished the year with 59 receptions for 677 yards and five touchdowns. Thomas' thirty-six 100-yard receiving performances are tops in team history. Josh Gordon is signed, but it's unclear if he'll be allowed to play next season following another suspension by the NFL. He also established Denver's single-season record with 1,619 yards receiving in 2014.
