Here it is. We have our first deadline trade!
Ian Rapoport of the NFL.com reports that sources have informed him that the Jacksonville Jaguars have traded WR Mike Thomas to the Detroit Lions.
There’s been no mention of what the Jaguars received in terms of compensation for Thomas.
This trade came out of nowhere. The Lions recently lost Nate Burleson for the season after he broke his leg, but it seemed as though they would move forward with Titus Young and Ryan Broyles. Thomas is expected to play in the slot for Detroit.
We’ll have more updates as the news becomes available.
