Agent: People are trying to push Julius Thomas away from Broncos


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Frank Bauer, Julius Thomas' agent, told reporters before the annual players' union-agent meeting Friday that people are trying to push his client away from the Broncos, per the Denver Post.

"The Broncos came to me, we tried to get it done, it didn't work," Bauer said. "Does Julius love Denver? Yes. Does Julius love the fans there? No question. Does he love the organization and the community? Look at what he does for kids in that town.

"But for some reason people are trying to tear him down. In my opinion what they're doing by tearing him down is pushing him away."

Bauer also revealed that Thomas was nursing a torn ligament in addition to an ankle sprain, which kept him sidelined three games during the final stretch of the season. Thomas finished 2014 with 489 yards and 12 touchdowns.

"The inner circle of the NFL -- not all the people talking on the outside, the guys who make the decisions -- they believe he's a unique and elite tight end," Bauer said. "Performance dictates every athlete's future. He is the best in the red zone. He is young. He has upside, as the inner circle would say.

"Yes, he got a high ankle sprain that was a concern because the first time he had a high ankle sprain it was later diagnosed as (ligament) tears."

Talks between both sides broke off last summer when Denver offered Thomas a five-year deal, worth $40 million. Bauer remains hopeful that talks will resume negotiations before March 10 when Thomas becomes an unrestricted free agent. According to NFL.com, the Raiders, Jets, Falcons and should all be in play if he hits the open market.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Report: Falcons interested in Broncos TE Julius Thomas


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) With Broncos tight end Julius Thomas expected to hit the free agent pool, one team has already emerged as an interested party.

According to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter, the Falcons are interested in Thomas since they're looking to upgrade the tight end position. Thomas wouldn't come cheap as he is looking to be paid as a top-flight tight end this coming free agency.

Broncos TE Julius Thomas likely headed to free agency


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) The writing is on the wall for Broncos tight end Julius Thomas when it comes to his immediate future.

According to The Denver Post, the Broncos are meeting with the agents of upcoming free agents Terrance Knighton, Demaryius Thomas, Orlando Franklin and Rahim Moore this week in Indianapolis.

No meeting has been scheduled with the representation of Julius Thomas.

Set to command a large contract, the Broncos may not be able to afford the versatile tight end based on cap constraints. However, The Denver Post reported the Broncos did offer Thomas a multi-year deal worth $8 million per year last July, which was turned down.

An ankle injury caused Thomas to miss three games in 2014, though when healthy he was tough to match up against. He finished 2014 with 489 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Ravens' Harbaugh: 'There's nothing definitive' on Dennis Pitta's future


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Ravens coach John Harbaugh said at the combine on Wednesday that "there's nothing definitive" on tight end Dennis Pitta's playing status, per the team's official website. Pitta dislocated and fractured his hip for the second time in as many years.

"It's between Dennis and the doctors right now," Harbaugh said. "I've got my fingers crossed, but only for what's best for Dennis. There's no way in the world that you want anything other than the fact that he can be safe."

Harbaugh noted that his surgically-repaired hip is fully recovered, and it will be up to Pitta if he wants to resume his playing career.

"His hip is fully recovered in the sense that the blood flow is there and there's no lingering problem from either one of the injuries, so he's in great position to live a great life, which is the main thing," Harbaugh said.


Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph wants to put injury-prone seasons behind


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph told the St. Paul Pioneer-Press he is hoping to ditch the injury-prone tag next season.

Rudolph signed a five-year, $40 million extension in August, but played just seven games last season due to early-season sports hernia surgery and knee and ankle injuries late in the year. He finished with 24 grabs for 231 yards and two touchdowns. He has played only two full football seasons in the past six during his time at Minnesota and Notre Dame.

Rudolph is in California working on his strength and conditioning for next season.

"I'd like to think no one in the league works harder than I do to stay healthy and take care of my body, but the bottom line is I haven't been, and the only way to get rid of those questions is to play 16 games," Rudolph said.

"The only thing I know how to do is to keep fighting to put the injuries behind me and be healthy every Sunday. I know when that happens, all those questions will be put to bed and I can continue working toward being one of the best tight ends in the game."

Report: Giants believe TE Larry Donnell is a 'future star'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2015) The Giants believe the offseason work ethic of tight end Larry Donnell will lead to him making a big leap in 2015 and that they have a "future star" in Donnell, ESPN.com reports.

Broncos will be hard-pressed to keep TE Julius Thomas


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) Impending free-agent tight end Julius Thomas wants to be among the league's highest-paid players at his position, and it will be tough for the Broncos to make him the kind of offer he'll likely receive elsewhere, reports ESPN.com.

The website noted Denver is set to use the franchise tag on wideout Demaryius Thomas and also will have to spend big on the offensive line, meaning there might not be enough money to satisfy Julius Thomas.

Julius Thomas caught 12 touchdowns in the first nine games until an ankle injury derailed him. He has never played more than 14 games in a season.


Kyle Rudolph optimistic about Year 2 in Norv Turner's system


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Rudolph believes he'll be far more productive in 2015, the second year in offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system.

“It will be huge. I think anytime you implement a new system, a new staff, year two is always going to be better,” Rudolph told the team's website. "We’re familiar with each other. They know us, we know them. Now it’s about getting better, us individually as players and as a whole, as a team, so I’m excited to get back up here in April and get working with Evan Marcus and Jeff Hurd in our strength program and getting back out on the field in late spring and building toward 2015."

Jets TE Jace Amaro could thrive in Chan Gailey's system


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Jets tight end Jace Amaro struggled mightily in his rookie year, dropping six of 52 passes thrown his way, the highest drop percentage of any tight end with at least 10 catches, reports ESPN.com. But the website said if offensive coordinator Chan Gailey employs his spread attack, it will benefit Amaro because he played in a similar offense at Texas Tech.

"Unless he struggles with the new system, Amaro should overtake [Jeff] Cumberland as the primary tight end," the report said.

Amaro (6-5, 265) played just 34 percent of the snaps as a rookie, catching 38 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns.
