Demaryius Thomas caught 8-of-12 targets for 105 yards in Denver's Week 8 win over the Chargers.
Thomas failed to score for the first time since Week 3, but both the 100-yard and eight-catch efforts were his fourth straight. Thomas ate up the Chargers' secondary for yards after the catch, but watched Emmanuel Sanders gobble up all the Broncos' primo end-zone looks. Playing the best football of his already excellent career, Thomas would be an All-Pro were the season to end today. Oct 24 - 12:13 AM

The Broncos do not expect to do new contracts with Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas until after the season is over.

This doesn't mean the Broncos are necessarily going to lose their superstars. Both Demaryius and Julius are in the final year of their rookie deals, yet GM John Elway will have a window between the end of the season and the free agency period to get new contracts done. He could also slap one with the franchise tag. If allowed to hit the market, Julius will at least get what Jimmy Graham recently landed (four years, $40M with $20.9 guaranteed) and Demaryius will rightfully be asking for Calvin Johnson money (eight years, $150.5M with $60 million guaranteed).

Demaryius Thomas had eight catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 7 win over the 49ers.

Thomas was on the receiving end of Peyton Manning's record-breaking touchdown. He was able to take advantage of being matched up with a less than fully healthy Tramaine Brock for most of the game. Thomas beat Perrish Cox deep down the field for his second score. After getting off to a slow start, Thomas has three straight games with at least 120 yards and a touchdown. He should be a top-three option against the Chargers in Week 8.
Oct 20 - 12:31 AM

Demaryius Thomas caught 10-of-12 targets for 124 yards and a touchdown in Denver's Week 6 win over the Jets.

Thomas caught a 54-yard pass on Denver's first play from scrimmage, and never looked back en route to his second consecutive 120-yard effort. Thomas now has 18 grabs for 350 yards and three touchdowns since the Broncos' Week 4 bye, and has squashed any concern there was about him falling from the ranks of the elite WR1s. San Francisco won't be able to stop him next Sunday night.
Oct 12 - 5:17 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught 8-of-16 targets for 226 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' Week 5 drubbing of Arizona.

He broke Shannon Sharpe's single-game franchise record for receiving yards in a dominant effort where Demaryius routinely whipped Antonio Cromartie down the sideline, and even had a 77-yard touchdown negated by offsetting penalties. Despite a slow start, Demaryius is back on pace for 84 catches, 1,468 yards, and 12 touchdowns through four games. Expect Thomas to keep rolling against the Jets' miserable secondary in Week 6.
Oct 5 - 7:25 PM

Demaryius Thomas denies that his impending contract situation has anything to do with his slow start to the season.

Thomas is in the final year of his rookie contract, leading to whispers that he's putting too much pressure on himself. Through three games, he's been targeted a healthy 27 times but has 13 catches and four drops. Note that Thomas had to deal with elite cover corner Vontae Davis in Week 1 and Richard Sherman in Week 3. With the bye week to get his head right and Peyton Manning still in his corner, Thomas is a no-brainer buy-low.

Demaryius Thomas caught four passes for 31 yards in Sunday's Week 3 overtime loss at Seattle.

Thomas did salvage his day slightly with a tough, game-tying two-point conversion near the end of regulation. But he was off his game again, dropping a couple bubble screens and luckily avoiding a fumble on replay. He did see a lot of Richard Sherman, but was not shadowed by any stretch and struggled to get open against Byron Maxwell as well. The good news is that Thomas has the bye to get right and then gets plus matchups against the Cardinals, Jets and 49ers. He's a nice buy-low.
Sep 21 - 8:59 PM

Demaryius Thomas caught five passes for 62 yards and one touchdown in the Broncos' Week 2 win over the Chiefs.

Just what Demaryius owners wanted after he managed only 48 yards and no scores in Week 1. Thomas was targeted seven times. His 12-yard touchdown grab was one of the better plays of the week, a one-handed catch behind Chris Owens in the left side of the end zone. Thomas battled a bit of a foot issue in pre-game warmups and missed a couple snaps, but it wasn't a real problem. Thomas and the Broncos head to Seattle in Week 3.
Sep 14 - 8:51 PM

Demaryius Thomas was limited to four catches for 48 yards in Sunday night's win over the Colts.

Thomas was held in check by Greg Toler, with Vontae Davis matching up with Emmanuel Sanders. He had at least two drops, and was contained outside of a 26-yard screen play late in the fourth quarter. Thomas finished with a team-high 11 targets and remains the clear No. 1 option in the pass game. He's a prime bounce back candidate against the Chiefs' secondary in Week 2.
Sep 8 - 12:48 AM

Grieving Demaryius Thomas had five catches for 52 yards on six targets in Thursday's preseason opener.

Thomas missed a bunch of early-camp practices after losing his grandmother to Alzheimer's. He shook off any rust with ease against the Seahawks. Thomas racked up the impressive stats on just 16 snaps, highlighting just how unstoppable the size-speed freak is. With Eric Decker gone and the offensive line improved, Demaryius has No. 1 overall wideout potential this season.

Demaryius Thomas (personal) will miss the first four days of training camp.

Thomas is attending funeral services for his grandmother in Georgia and isn't expected back until early next week. Now entering his third season in this Peyton Manning offense, there's no concerns whatsoever with the missed time. Thomas has piled up a ridiculous 186-2,864-24 line over the last two seasons.

Broncos GM John Elway said the team will continue to work on contract extensions for Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas during camp.

"I'm never going to go into the season, but the first couple of weeks, we can continue to talk about it," said Elway. "After the second week of the preseason, we'll want to have had something done, one way or another." The team would like to get both deals done. Demaryius should be the first priority.

A source tells Profootballtalk's Mike Florio that there's "nothing going on" in contract talks between the Broncos and Demaryius Thomas.

This conflicts with a previous report that Denver made a five-year offer to Thomas. Florio suggests there's still a "long way to go" before a deal gets done. GM John Elway has stated he wants to extend both Demaryius and Julius Thomas prior to training camp, but talks appear to be in the early stages. The Broncos have $4.62 million in 2014 cap space, so fitting two high-salary deals will be difficult.

A source tells Vic Lombardi of 104.3 The Fan in Denver the Broncos offered a five-year contract to Demaryius Thomas.

The Broncos have also initiated talks with TE Julius Thomas and hope to extend both players before training camp. A 2010 first-round pick, Thomas has been an elite receiver with Peyton Manning the last two seasons, posting 186 catches for 2,864 yards and 24 touchdowns. Thomas is still just 26 and could command $12 million annually. He's currently scheduled to make $3.27 million in the final year of his rookie deal. Denver wants to avoid having to franchise Thomas, which would cost roughly $12.3 million in 2015.
Jun 13 - 6:31 PM

GM John Elway says the Broncos have reached out to Demaryius Thomas' agent to talk about a contract extension.

"We'd like to get something done before the beginning of camp," Elway said. "We don't want to do anything once training camp starts." Elway is trying to lock up both Demaryius and Julius Thomas, who are entering the final years of their contracts. As long as he stays healthy, Demaryius should have a career season with Eric Decker now out of the picture. He could command $12 million per year.
