As Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas enters the final year of his contract, the Broncos hope that it won’t be his final year with the team.
The Broncos have offered Thomas a five-year contract, via Vic Lombardi and Nate Lundy of 104.3 The Fan in Denver.
The other Thomas who is due to be a free agent has not yet received an offer, although talks have occurred.
“I definitely would be open to working something out with the Denver Broncos,” tight end Julius Thomas said Friday, per Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “I don’t really understand how these things work. I’ll let [agent] Frank [Bauer] and Mr. [John] Elway take care of it.”
Earlier this year, the Broncos didn’t make a serious effort to keep receiver Eric Decker, who signed with the Jets. Assuming Peyton Manning plans to play beyond 2014, they’ll need to keep either or both of the Thomases.
