Demaryius Thomas: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Thomas said Monday that he will not attend the Broncos' offseason workouts, nor quarterback Peyton Manning's training sessions with the other wideouts at Duke University, ESPN.com reports.

Thomas will receive the franchise tag from the Broncos on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Thomas is projected to make nearly $13 million for the 2015 season as part of the tag. The move will likely allow tight end Julius Thomas to test the free agent market, while keeping the Broncos' top wideout under team control for another season. Demaryius snagged 111 passes for 1,619 yards, both career-highs, and added 11 receiving touchdowns in 2014.
Broncos general manager John Elway said Thursday that the team will use its franchise tag on Thomas, if the two sides are unable reach a long-term agreement before the March 2 deadline for the tag, USA Today's Lindsay Jones reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Elway confirmed what was already known, as its nearly unthinkable that the Broncos would allow Thomas to get away. Of course, hammering out an agreement could still take some time, and Thomas may not want to participate in team activities without a multi-year contract.
The Broncos are expected to use the franchise tag on Thomas if they are unable to reach an agreement on a long-term contract, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

There's little doubt that Thomas will be out there Sunday after practicing fully all week. The wideout finished up the regular season with back-to-back 115-yard efforts, making his overall total for the 2014 campaign a terrific 1,619 yards on 111 catches.

2014

There were a lot of mouths to feed in the Denver passing game last year, but nearly every one the table left fat and happy, none more so than Thomas, who led the team with 142 targets (12th) and led all NFL wideouts with 14 touchdowns. At 6-3, 229 and with a 4.38 40, Thomas is one of the league’s size/speed freaks in the Julio Jones/Calvin Johnson mold, who are dangerous anywhere on the field. While Thomas had only four catches of 40-plus (T-17th), he averaged 10.1 YPT (4th among the league’s 37 100-target WR). And while Thomas was only third on his own team in red-zone targets with 19, he converted seven of those for scores. With Eric Decker (136 targets, 23 red-zone, 14 inside-the-10) now in New York and Wes Welker now 33 years old, Thomas should see an even bigger role, both down the field and in the red zone. Should Thomas maintain his current efficiency – and with Peyton Manning under center, he’s not likely to fall off much – we could be looking at a receiving season for the ages. Of course, there will almost certainly be regression in the Denver passing game as a whole – all-time records are not easily repeated – but Thomas’ 2013 line was almost exactly in line with his 2012 one, and now Decker’s out of the picture.

2013

Thomas' first year with Peyton Manning under center could hardly have gone better. Thomas led the league's 100-target receivers in efficiency with 10.2 yards per look, thanks to 15.3 YPC and a 67-percent catch rate. Thomas was also fourth in red-zone targets (six of his 21 chances there went for scores), despite teammate Eric Decker leading the league with 25 red-zone looks and 12 red-zone scores. At 6-3, 229, and with 4.38 40 speed, Thomas possesses elite physical skills, and he put those to good use, with five catches of 40-plus (T-9th) and 29 catches of 20 yards or more, second only to Calvin Johnson’s 40. The addition of Wes Welker this offseason could cut into everyone’s targets, but there's reason to think it will impact Decker and the team's tight ends more severely than Thomas who runs routes further down the field. Moreover, while Welker and Decker are quality players, neither is a gamebreaker in Thomas' mold, a fact of which Manning is undoubtedly aware.

2012

After missing the first five games of 2011 while recovering from Achilles’ tendon surgery, Thomas quickly became Tim Tebow’s top target and big-play option, averaging 17.2 yards per catch and hauling in four catches of 40-plus yards. Thomas also lit up the Steelers’ top-ranked pass defense in the playoffs, catching four balls for 204 yards and a score. But Tebow’s inaccuracy cost Thomas as he caught just 46 percent of the passes thrown his way. That should change in 2012 with Peyton Manning under center for the Broncos. At 6-3, 229, and having run a 4.38 40 at the NFL Combine, Thomas possess all the physical tools to be a top-tier NFL receiver. Thomas’ hands were inconsistent, however, (six drops on just 69 targets), and he’s not nearly as polished as the Marvin Harrisons and Reggie Waynes with whom Manning is accustomed to working. Moreover, Thomas had surgery on his pinkie in March and at press time hadn’t yet had a chance to practice with Manning, giving teammate Eric Decker a head start. But Thomas is the player with the higher ceiling, and assuming Manning is completely healthy, and Thomas shows he can make his living on timing and route-running (and not just broken plays as he did with Tebow), we could be looking at a top-10 receiver.

2011

Drafted to be a replacement for Brandon Marshall, the 6-3, 229-pound Thomas missed most training camp with a foot injury and battled ankle problems for much of the season before tearing his Achilles’ tendon in early January. Somehow, he managed a couple productive games and posted averages of 7.3 YPT and 12.9 YPC. Thomas runs very well for a big man – 4.38 40 – and he’s a terrific athlete. He won’t be back until the season’s second half, but once he’s up to speed, he could find himself starting opposite Brandon Lloyd before too long.

2010

Drafted in the first round to replace the departed Brandon Marshall, Thomas’ physical tools — 6-3, 229, 4.38 40 speed and big-time athleticism — are top shelf. The question, at least in the short term, is whether he’s polished enough to contribute at the NFL level. Thomas played in an offense where he was essentially required to get open deep, so his route running skills have yet to be seriously tested. On the other hand, the wide receiver depth chart in Denver is wide open with only Eddie Royal and Jabbar Gaffney competing for the two starting slots. Just keep in mind Thomas could be a little behind heading into the summer, as he sat out spring OTAs with a broken foot. He should be ready for the start of training camp, however.
