Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is a priority for the team to sign to a long-term deal, but general manager John Elway isn't willing to pay him close to what New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham received. Elway said the team hasn't received a response from Thomas' representation after the team's initial offer. "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.

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas said the team will use him a lot more creatively this season. He also said he's focused on refining his technique and improving his role in pass and run blocking. "What I think people will see different in me (this year) is that they will use me a lot more creatively," Thomas said. "I think there are a lot of things that our offense wanted to do with me, but you can only learn so much in one year. No matter how much time you have at practice, it never seems to be enough when you're learning and trying to come into your own."
Fantasy Tip: Thomas is in a contract year and seems to have more of a grip on the playbook and more confidence. He has given every indication of a solid TE1.

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is working on his footwork and balance, in an effort to improve his blocking. Thomas stands to see additional playing time (potentially 75 more snaps over the season) if he shores up his blocking.
Fantasy Tip: Any additional playing time Thomas can earn is good for fantasy owners. He will be costly on draft day, but is a TE1 with room to build on his 2013 numbers now that Eric Decker is gone.

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas is monitoring the arbitration case between New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham and his team to determine his position. "I've kind of been keeping ... an eye on that situation, obviously, because it could probably come back to affect a lot of us tight ends," said Thomas, who is scheduled to make $645,000 this year. "But the way I feel about it is, 'Does two letters next to your name on the depth chart really determine your value to a team?'"

Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas admits he was very unsure of himself in the offense last season, and he's just now starting to pick things up. "Last year, I was able to do a lot of good things. I kind of survived on self confidence and athleticism. In one game, the defense did something, and Peyton was like, 'Julius, did you see that?' And I said, 'Peyton, they got me; I had no clue what they were doing.' There are still situations I haven't been in before, and I'm still learning what to do," Thomas said. Tight ends coach Clancy Barone said Thomas is a gym rat in terms of his study habits and has high intelligence and maturity.
Fantasy Tip: It's an encouraging sign for Thomas that he put up such a big season with limited knowledge of what he was doing on the field at times. The sky is the limit for him in 2014, and he'll be one of the first few tight ends off the board with Peyton Manning still at the helm in Denver.
