 Draft Scout Julius Thomas News
06/16/15 - TE Julius Thomas and quarterback Peyton Manning didn't become connected until their second year together in Denver. Thomas would like to move that timetable up a year when it comes to getting comfortable with Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles. In Manning's first year (2012) in Denver, Thomas' second season, the pair never combined for a single pass completion, despite Thomas starting four games. But by their second year together, they became a potent combination. Thomas was on the receiving end of 65 Manning passes, good for 788 yards and 12 touchdowns. All three figures are higher than any Jaguars tight end has ever recorded in a single season. That's why Thomas is continually asked about his relationship with Bortles. His latest answer on Tuesday indicates that things are becoming tighter between the two. "It's been good. I'm definitely getting an opportunity to know him as a man on and off the field," Thomas said. "I'm very impressed with his work ethic. He's not cutting corners, he really wants to come out here and play at a high level and he's doing things that it's going to take to do that. I'm very impressed with that and he's still young going into his second year so he's going to keep improving and we're going to keep doing all we can as a team to help him out." That of course prompted the next question to Thomas about how long it took for him and Manning to get on the same page with each other. Thomas somewhat dodged the question, or at best, talked around it. He said, "That's an interesting question. I think last year we had a better relationship as far as understanding each other than we did the first year I was playing. It's always growing. Chemistry is just like anything else in life; the longer you know somebody the more you understand them. I guess that's the question of it just takes time. You're continuing to learn each other, continuing to get better."
03/11/15 - TE Julius Thomas signed a five-year, $46.25 million contract that includes $24 million guaranteed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Thomas was the No. 1 tight end on the market largely because of his production in the red zone with Peyton Manning and the prolific Denver Broncos' offense. He had 24 touchdowns and 108 receptions in the past two seasons as Denver's starting tight end.
03/08/15 - TE Julius Thomas, unrestricted FA update, became the Broncos' biggest name on the open market after the decision to slap the franchise tag on Demaryius Thomas -- and could fetch one of the biggest guarantees ever given to a tight end. That appears to be too high for the Broncos, who committed $12.823 million to Demaryius Thomas and have pressing needs elsewhere, including the offensive line. Julius Thomas has been a productive pass-catcher, but ankle problems have kept him from playing an entire 16-game season. In four seasons, he has missed as many games as he's played (32 apiece).
01/07/15 - TE Julius Thomas believes that the first-round bye helped him progress in recovering from the sprained ankle he suffered in St. Louis on Nov. 16. Thomas' production and snaps have been down since he returned to action at San Diego on Dec. 14, but he had a full practice Wednesday.
01/05/15 - TE Julius Thomas said that the first-round bye helped his ankle, which has bothered him since he injured it in St. Louis on Nov. 16. Thomas' production and snaps have been down since he returned to action at San Diego on Dec. 14.
