Report: Should be a 'very active market' for Broncos' Julius Thomas
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas turned down a five-year, $40 million contract for a reason. That's because it's believed he will have a "very active market" when the new league year begins on March 10, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. 

Two teams that are expected to target Thomas in free agency are the Raiders and Jaguars, both of which need to upgrade considerably at their skill positions to help out their young quarterbacks. The expectation is for Broncos general manager John Elway to let Thomas test the waters in free agency to see what he's offered. 

The Falcons have also reportedly been interested, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter. 

Injuries slowed what was an otherwise fast start to his 2014 season. Thomas' season ended with 489 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Agent: People are trying to push Julius Thomas away from Broncos
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Frank Bauer, Julius Thomas' agent, told reporters before the annual players' union-agent meeting Friday that people are trying to push his client away from the Broncos, per the Denver Post.

"The Broncos came to me, we tried to get it done, it didn't work," Bauer said. "Does Julius love Denver? Yes. Does Julius love the fans there? No question. Does he love the organization and the community? Look at what he does for kids in that town.

"But for some reason people are trying to tear him down. In my opinion what they're doing by tearing him down is pushing him away."

Bauer also revealed that Thomas was nursing a torn ligament in addition to an ankle sprain, which kept him sidelined three games during the final stretch of the season. Thomas finished 2014 with 489 yards and 12 touchdowns.

"The inner circle of the NFL -- not all the people talking on the outside, the guys who make the decisions -- they believe he's a unique and elite tight end," Bauer said. "Performance dictates every athlete's future. He is the best in the red zone. He is young. He has upside, as the inner circle would say.

"Yes, he got a high ankle sprain that was a concern because the first time he had a high ankle sprain it was later diagnosed as (ligament) tears."

Talks between both sides broke off last summer when Denver offered Thomas a five-year deal, worth $40 million. Bauer remains hopeful that talks will resume negotiations before March 10 when Thomas becomes an unrestricted free agent. According to NFL.com, the Raiders, Jets, Falcons and should all be in play if he hits the open market.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

With Broncos tight end Julius Thomas expected to hit the free agent pool, one team has already emerged as an interested party.

According to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter, the Falcons are interested in Thomas since they're looking to upgrade the tight end position. Thomas wouldn't come cheap as he is looking to be paid as a top-flight tight end this coming free agency.

The Denver Post reported that Thomas turned down an $8 million per year deal from the Broncos previously. His representation is not among those meeting with the Broncos at the NFL combine this week.

Broncos TE Julius Thomas likely headed to free agency
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The writing is on the wall for Broncos tight end Julius Thomas when it comes to his immediate future.

According to The Denver Post, the Broncos are meeting with the agents of upcoming free agents Terrance Knighton, Demaryius Thomas, Orlando Franklin and Rahim Moore this week in Indianapolis.

No meeting has been scheduled with the representation of Julius Thomas.

Set to command a large contract, the Broncos may not be able to afford the versatile tight end based on cap constraints. However, The Denver Post reported the Broncos did offer Thomas a multi-year deal worth $8 million per year last July, which was turned down.

An ankle injury caused Thomas to miss three games in 2014, though when healthy he was tough to match up against. He finished 2014 with 489 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Broncos will be hard-pressed to keep TE Julius Thomas
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Impending free-agent tight end Julius Thomas wants to be among the league's highest-paid players at his position, and it will be tough for the Broncos to make him the kind of offer he'll likely receive elsewhere, reports ESPN.com.

The website noted Denver is set to use the franchise tag on wideout Demaryius Thomas and also will have to spend big on the offensive line, meaning there might not be enough money to satisfy Julius Thomas.

Julius Thomas caught 12 touchdowns in the first nine games until an ankle injury derailed him. He has never played more than 14 games in a season.
