The New England Patriots announced that they have signed free agent WR Demaryius Thomas and re-signed restricted free agent DB Jonathan Jones.

Thomas will reunite with a familiar face in New England.

During his brief stint in Houston, he caught 23 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns.

Thomas' deal with the Patriots could be worth up to $6 million, according to Ian Rapoport. He suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in Week 16.

Thomas pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of careless driving on March 27, and the felony charge was dismissed. The wideout was drafted by McDaniels and played for him in Denver in 2010.

Thomas, 31, is a veteran of nine National Football League seasons with the Denver Broncos (2010-18) and the Houston Texans (2018).

That injury likely made Thomas a flawless low-risk, high-reward addition for the Patriots, as his rehab and uncertainty at 31 years old will nearly certainly keep the Patriots from any sort of significant financial commitment on this contract.

A former first-round pick, Thomas spent his first eight-plus National Football League seasons with the Broncos, including a stint under former Denver head coach and current Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. Josh Gordon is signed, but it's unclear if he'll be allowed to play next season following another suspension by the NFL. The 31-year-old was one of the several pass catchers the Patriots reportedly brought in for a workout this month, and was also reportedly one of the players the team was interested in trading for ahead of the trade deadline last October. Four consecutive seasons of over 1300 yards receiving certainly proves that, but on the downside of his career, the chemistry or lack thereof with Tom Brady will determine if he can at least be effective in the Patriots offense.
