Two teams that are expected to target Thomas in free agency are the Raiders and Jaguars, both of which need to upgrade considerably at their skill positions to help out their young quarterbacks. The expectation is for Broncos general manager John Elway to let Thomas test the waters in free agency to see what he's offered.
The Falcons have also reportedly been interested, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter.
Injuries slowed what was an otherwise fast start to his 2014 season. Thomas' season ended with 489 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Last April, Charles was accused of pointing a firearm at another driver on a Madison County, Ky. road. As part of the diversion program, Charles must check in with a parole officer once a month via telephone. If he has no other run-ins with the law, this charge will be dropped from his record.
Charles spent most of the 2014 season on the Saints' practice squad.
Charles was a former fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft by the Bengals. A standout tight end in college at Georgia, Charles was moved to fullback in Cincinnati before being released prior to the 2014 season.

Casey is also scheduled to visit the Broncos on Thursday, reports The Denver Post.
Casey was recently released by the Eagles. In 2014, he caught three passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns.
"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.
Speaking at the Indianapolis scouting combine, Carroll said that Miller is recovering well from the ankle injury that ended his 2014 season. Miller had surgery during the Seahawks' week four bye, but he wasn't able to recover in time to return to the team.
