Draft Scout *Demaryius Thomas News
03/02/15 - WR Demaryius Thomas received the franchise tag from the Broncos Monday (March 2), the deadline for using the designation. Thomas was tendered a $12.823 million contract for 2015 -- the average of the top five NFL salaries at his position. He is allowed to negotiate with other teams, but the Broncos would have the chance to match any offer sheet or receive two first-round draft picks from the signing team.
Thomas and the Broncos are expected to continue talks toward a long-term contract. If they don't sign a multi-year contract by July 15, Thomas would have to play 2015 under the $12.823 million tag.
"This is another step in our efforts to extend Demaryius' contract and ensure he remains a Denver Bronco," general manager John Elway said. "We will continue working toward a long-term agreement with Demaryius, who is a very important part of our team."
Thomas, Denver's first-round pick in 2010, has compiled 4,483 yards on 297 receptions and 35 touchdowns in three years with Peyton Manning as the Broncos' quarterback. He has not missed a game since 2011.
He has three straight seasons of more than 1,400 yards and 10 touchdowns -- stats matched only by former wide receivers Jerry Rice and Marvin Harrison.
The Broncos' move probably signals the end of Pro Bowl tight end Julius Thomas' stay in Denver, who is expected to become an unrestricted free agent March 10.
