Demaryius Thomas cut weight this offseason and is down to 222 pounds.

Thomas' 2010 Combine weigh-in was 224, and he says he usually plays in the 228-229 range. "I'm fit," said Demaryius, who "held out" for all of OTAs and minicamp. "I think I'm a little faster. I think I'll play at a smaller weight this year, see how it goes." Not yet 28 years old, Thomas enters 2015 having finished as a top-five fantasy wideout in three consecutive seasons.

NBC Denver reports Demaryius Thomas turned down a seven-year, $100 million deal before signing his five-year, $70 million pact.

Per reporter Mike Klis, Thomas' agent "wasn't comfortable with the final two years of the deal," which included non-guaranteed $15 million salaries for 2020 and 2021. It appears the structure would have been the exact same as the contract "DT" signed, save for the final two years, where the Broncos would hold all the cards. Heading into his age-28 season, Thomas will be 32 at the end of his new pact. Between salary and bonuses, he'll net a guaranteed $22 million in 2015.

Demaryius Thomas will receive $35 million guaranteed over the first two seasons.

The Broncos gave Thomas all but $8.5 million of his guaranteed money up front. Thomas would have made $28.2M if he played under the franchise tag the next two years. Extending Thomas allows Denver to franchise Von Miller in 2016.

Broncos signed WR Demaryius Thomas to a five-year, $70 million contract, including $43.5 million guaranteed.

Oh, what deadlines will do for negotiations. Dez Bryant signed a five-year, $70 million pact with the Cowboys roughly 15 minutes before Thomas inked his with the Broncos. Both were said to be seeking upwards of $16 million per year, but ultimately settled on $14 million annually. Bryant edges Thomas in guaranteed money $45 million to $43.5 million, but both players have to be happy to have this mess behind them, allowing them to focus on football and not potential holdouts. At the end of the day, three unsigned franchise players -- Dez, Demaryius, and Justin Houston -- got long-term deals.
Jul 15 - 3:42 PM

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, "barring a significant turn" the Broncos will not reach a long-term deal with franchise player Demaryius Thomas before Wednesday's deadline.

Thomas is expected to miss at least some of training camp. Meanwhile, the NFL Players Association has accused the Broncos of colluding with the Cowboys, who are trying to sign Dez Bryant to a long-term deal. Skipping training camp would cost Thomas around $30,000 a day while missing regular season action would be even pricier. Walter Jones was the last player to sit out regular season games due to a holdout. Though a deal seems extremely unlikely, the Broncos still have until 4 p.m. ET to negotiate with Thomas.
Jul 15 - 9:30 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Broncos unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas "won’t be at camp on time" if the sides fail to reach a long-term deal by Wednesday's deadline.

Rapsheet reports the Broncos are offering Thomas "well over" $12 million per year, but aren't willing to give him "Megatron" money. Calvin Johnson's eight-year deal has an average-annual value of $18.8 million. As is the case with Dez Bryant, Thomas doesn't have a whole lot to gain by missing training camp, let alone games, as Wednesday is the hard-and-fast deadline for working out a long-term accord. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Tuesday that the sides hadn't talked in "over a month."
Jul 14 - 7:31 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Broncos haven't had contract discussions with unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas in "over a month."

It contradicts a report that the sides had "recently exchanged" proposals. Thomas' odds of getting a long-term deal appear better than Dez Bryant's, but still aren't good. Thomas is reportedly seeking "Calvin Johnson money," something a team that's all in on 2015 is probably unlikely to give. The sides have until Wednesday to reach an agreement.
Jul 14 - 5:48 PM

The NFLPA plans to move forward with collusion charges against the Cowboys and Broncos if Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas don't get long-term deals by Wednesday's deadline.

All the threats and leverage ploys are going public now that the deadline is upon us. The union says it has information that the two teams had conversations about the negotiations of Dez and Demaryius -- which would be a violation of the CBA's anti-collusion rules. Of course, they won't pursue these charges if the players get their money by Wednesday night.

Jul 14 - 12:17 PM

Mike Klis of 9News.com in Denver reports the Broncos have recently offered unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas a long-term contract that would make him the league's second-highest paid receiver.

Per Klis, the two sides have exchanged contract offers with less than 48 hours until Wednesday's deadline. Thomas is said to be seeking Calvin Johnson money and beyond at $16 million-plus annually with around $50 million guaranteed. The Broncos' offer would put Thomas ahead of Mike Wallace's $12 million per-year rate and behind Megatron. Thomas may have to decide if he wants the security or play hardball for the money he feels he deserves and take another shot at it next offseason after playing on the tag.

A source tells PFT it's "not likely" unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas gets a long-term extension by Wednesday's deadline.

Thomas and Dez Bryant are in the same boat. If an extension isn't done by Wednesday's NFL-imposed deadline, they'll be forced to play out 2015 on a one-year, $12.82 million franchise tender. Unlike Dez, however, Thomas has not threatened any kind of holdout. Demaryius would break the bank in 2016 free agency if he gets to market, likely landing a Calvin Johnson kind of deal (eight years, $150 million with $60 million guaranteed).
Jul 13 - 12:50 PM

The NFL Players Association is looking into whether the Broncos and Cowboys are committing collusion with regard to unsigned franchise players Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant's contract situations.

The NFLPA believes the Broncos and Cowboys "had contact" about Demaryius and Dez's contracts, when the Collective Bargaining Agreement expressly prohibits such contact. The Players Association is now investigating whether collusion was committed. The deadline for franchise players to sign long-term deals is next Wednesday. If one or both of the Broncos and Cowboys sign their wideouts long term, the Players Association's investigation should go away.
Jul 10 - 5:02 PM

Unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas reportedly wants Calvin Johnson money in his next contract.

Back in 2012, Johnson signed a massive eight-year, $150.5 million contract that included a $16 million signing bonus as part of $60 million guaranteed. It still stands as the benchmark for wideouts by a wide margin, status Thomas deserves after going over 1,400 yards and 10 touchdowns in three straight seasons while never missing a game. If a long-term deal doesn't get done by July 15, Thomas will play out the 2015 season on a $12.823 million franchise tender.

Jul 7 - 8:10 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Peyton Manning is upset the Broncos have yet to finalize a contract with franchise player Demaryius Thomas.

Manning isn't getting reps with his No. 1 receiver while coach Gary Kubiak installs a new offense. And Manning relies on offseason work to build chemistry with pass catchers. Since Thomas isn't signed, he's choosing not to work out with his teammates and risk injury. Manning also took a $4 million pay cut, which he probably assumed would help get Thomas a new deal. League executives reportedly believe Thomas deserves a Calvin Johnson contract in the eight years and $130 million range.

Unsigned franchise player Demaryius Thomas is expected to be a no-show for the Broncos' upcoming mandatory minicamp.

It's mandatory for players under contract, but not for Thomas, who has yet to sign his $12.823 million franchise tender. Thomas is highly likely to eventually report to the Broncos, but it may not happen until training camp.
