Following a tragic injury in which he tore his Achilles tendon last season, Demaryius Thomas has impressed many with his recovery and return to the football field. However, he was one of the casualties from the New England Patriots' recent roster cuts.

At 31 years old, not every team will come knocking on Thomas' door, but these are the three most likely destinations for the veteran wide receiver.

3. New England Patriots

Returning to the team that just cut him? It's certainly possible. Thomas was right on the bubble, but he showed he still has something left in the tank after he exploded for 87 yards and two touchdowns in the final week of the preseason. If anything happens to this receiving corps, which has been very prone to injury over the years, Thomas may be the first person they call. If you're a player and the New England Patriots call, you pick up.

2. Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos reaching out to their former star could make a ton of sense for both sides. Denver's WR corps is thin, and the Broncos are really relying on Emmanuel Sanders (who is also coming off an Achilles injury), and Courtland Sutton, who is largely unproven at the NFL level. Signing Thomas could be a solid way to add some depth to a WR room that sorely needs it.

1. Seattle Seahawks

We know the Seattle Seahawks are willing to take a risk on veteran receivers, just take a look at last season's Brandon Marshall experiment. We also know that they have very little depth in their WR corps outside of Tyler Lockett. DK Metcalf is still recovering from an injury, and they recently cut Jaron Brown to make room for Jadeveon Clowney. Thomas could make a lot of sense for a Seahawks team that is in need of a veteran presence at WR.
