Broncos franchise player Demaryius Thomas is not expected to sign his one-year, $12.823 million tag until July 15.
This assumes no long-term agreement is reached before then, of course. Refusing to sign the tender and staying away from offseason workouts are pretty much the only ways franchise-tagged players can create leverage. The Denver Post's Mike Klis tweeted Monday that he'd "guess" the sides ultimately reach a deal paying Demaryius $14 million annually with $30 million guaranteed. Mar 3 - 2:23 PM

Broncos assigned the franchise tag to WR Demaryius Thomas.

It's a one-year, $12.823 million tender. The tag was expected for Thomas, who led the Broncos with 111 receptions last season. The sides have until July 15 to reach a long-term agreement. Dez Bryant, Justin Houston and Jason Pierre-Paul have also been franchised.

The Denver Post reports the Broncos will apply the franchise tag to free agent Demaryius Thomas on Monday.

Both Dez Bryant and Demaryius can expect tags on Monday. Beat writer Mike Klis guesses Thomas won't sign the one-year franchise tender until after the Broncos' offseason program is completed, allowing him to skip the activities without penalty. The wide receiver tag is expected to be worth $12.797 million. The Broncos offered Demaryius a deal worth $13 million annually last summer, but Thomas was "seeking something north of $15 million per." He proceeded to set the Broncos' franchise record for receiving yards (1,619).

With Tuesday's deadline for the franchise tag approaching, the Broncos and free agent Demaryius Thomas are no closer to signing a long-term deal.

Thomas fully expects to receive the franchise tag, which would pay him around $13 million. There's no way Demaryius is leaving Denver after the season he had in 2014 (111 catches, franchise record 1,619 yards). However, his large cap hit could force Peyton Manning to restructure his deal.

The Broncos will use the franchise tag on free agent Demaryius Thomas if they cannot come to a long-term agreement.

Teams have until March 2 to apply the tag. That leaves 10 days to work out a long-term contract. It's extremely unlikely to happen, leaving the tag as Thomas' most likely fate. The sides would then have until mid-July to hammer out a multi-year deal. The tag for receivers costs roughly $12.7 million.
Feb 19 - 3:11 PM

The 2015 franchise tag for wide receivers is expected to cost around $12.7 million.

Teams can begin applying tags on February 16. The Denver Post confirms retaining free agent Demaryius Thomas is "by far" the Broncos' "top in-house priority," and the franchise tag will be in play if the sides can't strike a long-term agreement shortly. Extension talks between the Broncos and Demaryius broke off last July. Regardless, he won't be hitting free agency.

Demaryius Thomas secured 5-of-12 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Broncos' Divisional Round loss to the Colts.

Thomas got the best of Colts S LaRon Landry on a one-yard touchdown catch to cap Denver's opening drive. Demaryius had two costly drops on second-quarter bubble screens that might have gone for big gains, however, and went to halftime with just the one catch on seven first-half targets. Thomas saved his stat line with a number of garbage-time catches as Peyton Manning attempted to bolster his career playoff stats with the game already in the books. Demaryius is an impending free agent. We would be shocked if GM John Elway let him get away, using the franchise tag if forced to.

Demaryius Thomas caught eight passes for 115 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Raiders.

Thomas posted his 10th 100-yard game of the season, but he also dropped an easy touchdown on a back-shoulder throw and couldn't get his feet down in bounds on another chunk play. No matter. Thomas was dominant once again this season, finishing with a career-high 111 catches for a career-high 1,619 yards and 11 TDs while playing in all 16 games for the third straight year. Since Peyton Manning came to Denver in 2012, DT is averaging 99.0 catches for 1494.3 yards and 11.6 scores per season. He'll rest some nicks on his fingers during the bye week.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle, hip) is practicing in full for Week 17.

Thomas will be good to go for his usual role against the Raiders. The only concern for players in DFS leagues is if the Broncos get up too big, too early, sending Thomas to the bench before the game is through.

Demaryius Thomas caught seven passes for 115 yards in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Bengals.

He was targeted a game-high 13 times. Thomas could have had a much bigger night, as he had a 50-yard catch called back on a holding penalty and then had another 30-yard gain brought back on offensive pass interference. Thomas was winning his matchups, but lost out near the end zone to Emmanuel Sanders, who caught two short touchdowns. The Broncos play the Raiders in Week 17.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 16.

Thomas avoided setbacks with his ankle in Week 15, and is locked and loaded as a WR1 for the fantasy finals.

Demaryius Thomas caught six passes for 123 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win at San Diego.

Thomas got back on track after last week's nightmare, easily beating both Brandon Flowers and Shareece Wright whenever he wanted. The highlight was a back-shoulder throw on Flowers that went for a 28-yard score, his 11th of the season (to go with eight 100-yard days). Although the Broncos are shifting toward more of a run-heavy gameplan, Thomas saw 11 of Peyton Manning's 20 throws in this one and will be an elite WR1 against the 49ers in Week 16.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 15.

Thomas was upgraded to full on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. He's a top-three receiver play for Week 15.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) returned to Broncos practice Thursday.

He'll likely be listed as "limited," but Thomas is fully on track for his regular role against the Chargers. He's a top-three WR1 for the fantasy semifinals.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.

Thomas hurt his ankle when a teammate stepped on it last Wednesday. He was fine to play Week 14 against the Bills, but it was clearly bothering him. Thomas will be fine for Week 15 against the Chargers. He'll run most of his routes against burnable RCB Shareece Wright. Thomas remains an elite WR1.
