Demaryius Thomas upset with slow start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) After back-to-back 90-catch, 1,400-yard seasons, Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is far off that pace to start the 2014 season. He has just 13 catches for 141 yards through three games.

"I know I ain't playing at my highest potential right now. And I do get down on myself," Thomas told The Denver Post Wednesday. "I had the most drops in these first three games that I've had my entire career. I don't know what it is. I don't know if I'm thinking too much."

One area Thomas stresses is not an issue is playing for his next contract. He is in the final year of his rookie contract and free agency looms after Thomas and the Broncos failed to agree on a contract extension this summer.

"Nah, the contract is not part of it. The contract is going to work out by itself. I can't really do nothing about it," Thomas said. "Either you play well or you don't. There's no dollar signs involved when I'm playing football. All I care about is winning. So when I can't make the play, the reason I'm upset is I'm not helping the team win."


Demaryius Thomas makes a couple of pivotal catches in OT loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas worked through a sore foot injury and still managed to make some big plays in Week 3 overtime loss to the Seahawks.

The 26-year-old got off to a dreadful start on Sunday, as he was held without a grab in the first half. He came down with an 11-yard reception with just over a minute remaining in the third quarter for his first grab of the day.

Down eight points, Thomas converted a pivotal third down with under 30 remaining, which led to a Peyton Manning touchdown to Jacob Tamme on the following play. Thomas kept his feet in bounds near the back of the end zone for a spectacular catch for a two-point conversion following the touchdown, which sent the game to overtime.

Thomas, who was covered by Richard Sherman through most of the afternoon, finished with four catches for 31 yards. He was targeted 12 times in a 26-20 defeat. Thomas has not racked up more than 65 receiving yards in a game this season. He'll get a bye week before facing the Cardinals at home in Week 5.


Demaryius Thomas scores TD in 62-yard Week 2


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas caught five of his seven targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs Sunday.

Thomas hauled in a 12-yard pass near the end of the first half to put the Broncos up 21-1, but the Broncos couldn't get much done on offense in the second half, though they did hang on for a win to move to 2-0. Thomas caught just four of his 11 targets in Week 1 but had a much better game Sunday, despite the offense being limited to 26 pass attempts. He could be looking at a matchup with Richard Sherman next Sunday when the Broncos travel to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch.


Demaryius Thomas has a history of bouncing back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas admitted he let his first drop get to him in Week 1 against the Colts, which led to two more for the usually sure-handed wideout.

"It was bothering me after the first one and I guess I let it linger on and bother me the other two," Thomas told the team's official website.

Thomas had a drop in the first quarter on a screen last Sunday, and added one more in each of the third and fourth quarters. He was credited with just eight dropped passes a year ago, and will look to bounce back in Week 2 against the Chiefs, and has a history of doing so after his rare missteps.

He has failed to record 50-plus yards in a game just four times since Dec., 2012, but averaged 6.3 catches for 123 yards and a touchdown in the next four games.

"(Week 1) was tough," said Thomas. "But it's over with now, and I go on to the next (game)."


Demaryius Thomas can't get going Week 1


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Broncos No. 1 receiver Demaryius Thomas had a frustrating night in the 31-24 win over the Colts. Although he drew a team-high 11 targets, he was often double-covered and a few of Peyton Manning's throws were not catchable.

Thomas compounded matters by dropping two easy passes, including a bubble screen that could have been a long gainer. Thomas finished with four catches for 48 yards -- worse production than he had in all but one game last year.

To be fair, Thomas drew two defensive penalties. He got held once after beating his man deep, a play that could have gone for a touchdown. And Manning targeted him three straight times in the end zone on one series.

Thomas will try to get back to his normal self Week 2 against the Chiefs.


Demaryius Thomas needs better performance vs. Vontae Davis


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Broncos No. 1 receiver Demaryius Thomas dominated most cornerbacks last year. That was not the case with Vontae Davis.

The Colts' top corner held up well Week 7 against the 6-3, 229-pound Thomas. While Thomas caught four passes for 82 yards and a touchdown, his 31-yard score came one play after Davis exited briefly with an injury. Thomas ended up catching fewer than half his nine targets.

Davis graded out as Indy's top defensive player that night. In addition to making five tackles, he allowed three completions out of eight throws to his coverage area for 12 yards. Whatever damage Thomas did, he didn't do it against Davis. Thomas figures to see plenty of Davis (5-11, 207 pounds) when Denver hosts Indy in Week 1.

Thomas should get redemption Sunday night. He usually comes out with a bang -- he has five touchdown catches in four season openers -- and the Broncos will scheme to free him up. Consider him a top-5 play as usual, despite the tough individual matchup.

Demaryius Thomas involved early and often


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas caught all five of his targets for 37 yards against the 49ers on Sunday. Peyton Manning looked Thomas' way repeatedly, targeting him whenever there was a cushion.

Thomas left the game for good early in the second quarter, with the rest of the starters.


Demaryius Thomas makes five grabs in two drives vs. Seattle


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas looked like his old self during Thursday's preseason opener against Seattle.

Thomas was on the field with the first-team offense for only two drives, but still managed to make his presence felt. He was targeted six times and caught five of Peyton Manning's 10 completed passes for 54 yards. A 15-yard catch in the opening drive was his longest gain of the night.

Demaryius Thomas back at practice Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas was back at practice Monday, the Denver Post reports.

Thomas will need to participate in two more practices before being cleared to put the pads on and engage in contact work. He was excused from the beginning of camp to attend to a personal matter.


Demaryius Thomas slated to return to practice Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Broncos to continue contract negotiations into training camp


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) The Broncos hae made contract-extension offers to wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas and are prepared to continue negotiations into training camp, USA Today reports.

"Nothing is going to get done before camp, but we'll keep talking to them in camp," general manager John Elway said Wednesday.

Both players are entering the final year of their rookie deals. Elway indicated he won't break off talks with either player until early August. Elway indicated that Julius Thomas won't receive an offer that matches the record deal received by Saints tight end Jimmy Graham.

"Even though Julius had a tremendous year for us, he's only (played) 23 games. We want Julius to be a Bronco for a long time and we think he has tremendous upside, but he's not at that level," Elway said.


Report: Broncos offer five-year deal to Demaryius Thomas


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) The Broncos have offered a five-year deal to prolific wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, an NFL source has told the Denver Post.

Thomas is coming off his second straight sensational season with 92 catches for 1,430 yards and a career-high 14 touchdowns.


Broncos talking contracts for Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/10/2014) The Broncos have opened contract negotiations with the agents of wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas, reports the Denver Post.

"We've already talked to them to see if we can do something before the beginning of the year," said Broncos general manager John Elway. "We'd like to get something done before the beginning of camp. We don't want to do anything once training camp starts. They're both in their last years, and we'd like for them to stay and be Broncos for a long time."

Demaryius Thomas, a 2010 first-round draft pick who is coming off back-to- back seasons of Pro Bowl-caliber production, might command a contract worth $12 million a year based on the receiver's 2014 franchise tag salary.

Julius Thomas, a fourth-round draft pick in 2011 who had a breakout season in his third year of 2013, might be looking at a $7 million annual average.


Demaryius Thomas, Broncos not talking contract - yet


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/2/2014) The Broncos have not started contract talks with receiver Demaryius Thomas yet, reports the Denver Post.

Thomas is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014 season. The Broncos want to keep him, and he stands in line for a substantial raise since he will make just $3.275 million this year. Denver could place the franchise tag on him after the season, which would cost no less than $12.3 million.

The report says the Broncos have a history of making an aggressive attempt to sign core players before training camp, so a deal could be coming this summer.

"I never think about that. I don't even know if (Eric) Decker (now with the Jets) was talking about it (last year). All we talked about was being able to play with each other again. He wanted to come back, but it just didn't work out," Thomas said. "You really never think about the big payday, or anything like that. We like playing together, and I like playing football."


Broncos draft WR Cody Latimer


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/9/2014) With the No. 56 pick in the NFL Draft, the Broncos selected receiver Cody Latimer from Indiana.

The Broncos had a need for another receiver with Eric Decker gone, but Latimer should be No. 4 on the depth chart behind Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Emmanuel Sanders.

Latimer has 4.4 speed to go with a 6-foot-3, 215-pound body. He's consistently found ways to get open, be it by using good agility and quickness or by separating from defenders. His speed isn't good enough to keep him from blowing past defenders, though. Latimer is considered a bit of a project despite hauling in 72 catches for 1,096 yards and nine touchdowns for the Hoosiers last season.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Demaryius Thomas still hurt from Super Bowl?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Demaryius Thomas pays price for Super Bowl record


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas set a Super Bowl record with 13 catches, but he paid a big price, reports the Denver Post. "His left shoulder hurt so bad the morning after, he needed help rolling his bag to the luggage cart," the paper said.

Thomas got hit hard by the Seahawks after nearly every reception. Safety Kam Chancellor set the tone by leveling Thomas following his first catch over the middle.


Demaryius Thomas sets Super Bowl record with 13 catches


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

While Thomas was the lone bright spot on Denver's offense, he committed a costly third-quarter fumble. Following a 23-yard catch, Thomas had the ball poked out by cornerback Byron Maxwell.


Broncos wide receivers not worried about physical Seahawks


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) The Broncos wideouts are not worried about the physical Seahawks, according to NFL.com.

"You can't come out and get pushed around," the tight end said. Though Peyton Manning will have a bevy of options at his disposal, the Seahawks rated second in the league in points allowed last season. Whether the team's wide receivers can get open against a tough Seattle secondary will be one of the biggest story lines heading into the game.


Richard Sherman: Demaryius Thomas a top-5 wideout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman called 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree a "sorry" receiver, but he's got a lot more respect for the Broncos' Demaryius Thomas.

"I definitely think he's top five," Sherman said, per NFL.com. "He put together the type of year and done everything in his power to put himself in that conversation. He's made big catches, he's got a lot of run after the catches, he turns some small plays into huge plays, and I think that he's a great receiver. He's a great competitor, and I'm sure it's going to be a fun night for both of us because we're both intense competitors and good players."
