Friday brought multiple reports that the Broncos have made a five-year offer to receiver Demaryius Thomas. A source with direct knowledge of the situation has provided a more sobering assessment.
“Nothing going on,” the source said.
The source also explains that an offer has not been made to Thomas, on a five-year deal or any other terms.
It’s possible that discussions have centered on structure or concepts or whatever, and that different interpretations can be applied to whether an actual offer was extended. Regardless, to the extent that the reports of a five-year offer suggest that a deal could be coming, there’s still a very, very long way to go.
G.M. John Elway has said he’d like to extend the contracts of Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas. Each key pieces in the team’s pass-happy offense, both are eligible for unrestrcted free agency in 2015.
