The Denver Broncos are working out contract extensions for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas.
The Denver Broncos broke records with their offense by scoring 606 points in the regular season, and they scored a whopping 37.9 points per game.
Quarterback Peyton Manning took advantage of his plethora of weapons by throwing for 5,477 yards, 55 touchdown passes and only 10 interceptions. His quarterback rating was 115.1.
The reigning MVP lost his No. 2 receiver, Eric Decker, to the New York Jets. His other top weapons, Demaryius Thomas and tight end Julius Thomas, are in line to receive contract extensions though since their rookie deals are set to expire after this season.
Demaryius continued to be Manning’s top receiving threat, finishing with 92 catches, 1,430 yards and 14 touchdown receptions. Julius broke out unexpectedly and finished with 65 receptions, 788 yards and 12 touchdown catches.
General manager John Elway plans to get deals done soon as reported by USA Today. He does not plan to pay Julius the type of money that Jimmy Graham earned. “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.
