The Denver Broncos are hoping to ensure wide receiver Demaryius Thomas stays a member of the franchise for the long term.
According to radio station 104.3 in Denver, the Broncos have offered Thomas a five-year contract. The report states that the Broncos hope to have a deal done by training camp. As of now, Thomas is scheduled to be a free agent in 2015.
Thomas followed up his 2012 season (1,434 yards, 10 touchdowns) with 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns a season ago. With Peyton Manning, Thomas has become one of the NFL's best deep threats.
Even if Manning isn't in the NFL for more than a year or two, it appears the Broncos want to make sure that Thomas, in his prime, remains a member of the team for quite some time.
