Jacksonville, FL – The Detroit Lions have acquired wide receiver Mike Thomas from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for an undisclosed draft pick.
Thomas had just 13 catches for 80 yards this season. The Arizona product hauled in 171 passes for 1,768 yards and six touchdowns over three-plus seasons with Jacksonville.
The Lions placed wide receiver Nate Burleson on injured reserve last week.
The NFL pushed the trade deadline back to Thursday because of Hurricane Sandy. The deadline originally was scheduled for Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET, but has been delayed 48 hours due to the storm, which hit the East Coast on Monday.
