If there’s any jawing on the field in Super Bowl 50, Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas will not be a participant.
“No, I don’t talk on the field,” Thomas said. “I let my play do the talking between the whistles. I don’t have to talk. There’s no reason to talk. We don’t get paid to talk. We get paid to play football.”
Thomas was asked if he thinks he’ll go back and forth with Panthers cornerback Josh Norman, but Thomas said he has no idea if Norman or any other cornerback trash talks him on the field. Thomas tunes it all out.
“No. I don’t know if anybody does talk. I don’t pay attention to it. I don’t talk. I don’t get into the talking,” Thomas said. “I’ve seen him on film talking. But if he does, it’s not going to bother me. I’m going to be ready for it.”
Thomas said he thought Norman’s back-and-forth with Odell Beckham in December was “crazy” and Thomas is confident he won’t be baited into any similar situation.
“No. There’s no reason to,” Thomas said. “That makes a cornerback play better.”
