Julius Thomas grabs touchdown in Week 2 win vs. Chiefs
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas caught four of his five targets for 39 yards and a touchdown in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs Sunday.

Thomas grabbed a TD on the team's first offensive drive on a play to the back left corner of the end zone. It was his second catch of the drive, and he would tally only two more over the rest of the day. He even saw positional mate Jacob Tamme score a touchdown later in the game. It was a solid day for Thomas after exploding for 104 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1. He'll take on the Seahawks in Week 3.

Julius Thomas delivers historic performance
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Until Sunday night, Shannon Sharpe was the only Broncos tight end who had ever caught three touchdowns in a game. Julius Thomas added his name to that list in the second quarter of the 31-24 win over the Colts.

Thomas caught scoring passes of 3, 35 and 5 yards, beating a different Colts defender with relative ease each time. He finished with seven catches for 104 yards and now has five touchdown grabs in his last two season openers.

Thomas drew eight targets, third on the team. He continues to be a complete mismatch. Late in the first quarter, Thomas got behind the defense for a 34-yard gain down the sideline. Peyton Manning kept looking for him, especially in the red zone.

Thomas faces the Chiefs in Week 2.

Tough matchup not a concern for Julius Thomas
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas opens the season with a difficult matchup: Indianapolis allowed the fewest Fantasy points to tight ends (5.33 per game) last year.

It's not a concern for Thomas, one of three tight ends to catch a touchdown against the Colts in 2013. In Week 7 at Indy, Thomas caught five of six targets for 41 yards and the score.

That was one of 12 touchdowns Thomas scored in his breakout season. The 26-year-old showed he's not satisfied by taking a diligent offseason approach, according to the Denver Post.

"He's going to be a very special player," former Broncos tight end Joel Dreessen said. "It was fun to watch him grow up last season. In this offseason, he really impressed me with his attitude and work ethic and how hungry he was."

Thomas drew 17 red-zone targets last year. With Eric Decker's departure, the 6-5, 250-pound Thomas should see a few more this season. He's a top-3 play Sunday night.

Julius Thomas a matchup nightmare
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas abused the 49ers' secondary Sunday, catching three passes for 35 yards and a touchdown in just over a quarter of work. All three of his grabs came on Denver's second drive.

After a 19-yard catch over the middle and a screen that went nowhere, Thomas got behind safety Craig Dahl for an easy 17-yard touchdown.

Thomas scored 12 touchdowns last year despite missing two games.

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

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.
