Broncos to continue contract negotiations into training camp
by R.J. White |

The Broncos hae made contract-extension offers to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas and are prepared to continue negotiations into training camp, USA Today reports.

"Nothing is going to get done before camp, but we'll keep talking to them in camp," general manager John Elway said Wednesday.

Both players are entering the final year of their rookie deals. Elway indicated he won't break off talks with either player until early August. Elway indicated that Julius Thomas won't receive an offer that matches the record deal received by Saints tight end Jimmy Graham.

"Even though Julius had a tremendous year for us, he's only (played) 23 games. We want Julius to be a Bronco for a long time and we think he has tremendous upside, but he's not at that level," Elway said.

Julius Thomas says he'll be used more creatively
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas told that the team plans on using him "a lot more creatively" in 2014, one season after his breakout season with the team. 

"I think there are a lot of things that our offense wanted to do with me, but you can only learn so much in one year," Thomas explained. "No matter how much time you have at practice, it never seems to be enough when you're learning and trying to come into your own.

Thomas said he's still "scratching the surface" on what he's able to contribute, adding that he's just now getting comfortable with what's being asked of him. 

Thomas racked up 65 catches for 788 yards and 10 touchdowns last season.

Julius Thomas claims he's still learning
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Julius Thomas racked up 65 catches for 788 yards and 10 touchdowns in his breakout season for the Broncos in 2013, but he told that he really didn't have a good feel for what he was doing until this offseason

"Last year, I was able to do a lot of good things. I kind of survived on self-confidence and athleticism," Thomas said. "In one game, the defense did something, and Peyton was like, 'Julius, did you see that?' And I said, 'Peyton, they got me; I had no clue what they were doing.' There are still situations I haven't been in before, and I'm still learning what to do."

Broncos talking contracts for Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Broncos have opened contract negotiations with the agents of wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas, reports the Denver Post.

"We've already talked to them to see if we can do something before the beginning of the year," said Broncos general manager John Elway. "We'd like to get something done before the beginning of camp. We don't want to do anything once training camp starts. They're both in their last years, and we'd like for them to stay and be Broncos for a long time."

Demaryius Thomas, a 2010 first-round draft pick who is coming off back-to- back seasons of Pro Bowl-caliber production, might command a contract worth $12 million a year based on the receiver's 2014 franchise tag salary.

Julius Thomas, a fourth-round draft pick in 2011 who had a breakout season in his third year of 2013, might be looking at a $7 million annual average.

Julius Thomas 'hungrier' than last year
by Larry Hartstein |

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas said the Super Bowl loss served as a big motivator this offseason.

"I think I’m hungrier than even I was last year," he told the Denver Post. "To be so close and not reach your goal, it just makes you that much more hungry, that much more determined to do whatever it takes."
