Julius Thomas has eyes on Jimmy Graham situation

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is keeping his eyes on the situation out in New Orleans with Jimmy Graham. Thomas becomes a free agent at the end of the season and will be looking for a big time deal from the team. If the team were to slap the franchise tag on him, he would like to know what kind of dough he would be able to collect from it.

Here are his thoughts via the AP:

“Does it matter if he’s a tight end, or if he calls himself a slot receiver or a running back?” Thomas said. “I mean, if you’re going to have double-digit touchdowns and contribute a bunch of yards in the receiving game, I just say that you’re a guy that makes great plays and are a value to your team. So I don’t know why the argument necessarily comes down to either you’re a tight end or a receiver. I think that if you’re a guy that makes plays, that’s how you should be valued.”

Thomas has the potential to have another big year with Peyton Manning throwing the ball around the field. The Broncos are looking to compete for the Super Bowl again and Thomas is expected to take a big role on offense.
