Texans to release veteran WR Demaryius Thomas

The Houston Texans will release veteran wide receiver Demaryius Thomas on Tuesday, a source told ESPN, confirming multiple reports.

The impending roster move was first reported by NFL Network.

Thomas, 31, suffered a season-ending torn Achilles in December. He is due a non-guaranteed $14 million salary in 2019.

Thomas said last month that his return to Houston was "up in the air" because of the presence of young wide receivers Keke Coutee and Will Fuller V.

He said he was not thinking about retiring.

"My main priority right now is getting back healthy. I can still play, man. I'm not thinking about retirement. I just don't know where it will be," he told reporters, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Thomas was acquired by the Texans from the Broncos before last year's trading deadline. The four-time Pro Bowl selection caught 23 passes for 275 yards and two touchdowns in seven games after the trade.
