"I don't think so", Tate told Birkett on Monday evening after the rumors started swirling.
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). The Broncos were ready to move on from Thomas, because they want to promote Courtland Sutton into a more prominent role in the offense. With a 3-5 record and a number of teams calling on Thomas' availability, however, it will be hard for the Broncos to avoid trading him considering almost $20 million would come off the books. He has 17 catches for 266 yards and one touchdown since joining the Patriots. The Broncos don't play the Patriots this year. This season, Thomas (6-3, 229) has recorded 36 receptions for 402 yards (11.2 avg.) and three touchdowns in eight games with Denver.

Thomas will likely be a one-season rental, as his contract has an opt-out clause at the end of the 2018 season. "It's never easy when you trade a guy who's been a household name here for a long time and who's done a lot of great things, not only on the football field, but also in the community and is a good man".
