Report: Broncos Will Tag Thomas Sans New Deal

A report today sheds light on the Demaryius Thomas situation.

Demaryius Thomas, a 2010 first round pick of the Josh McDaniels regime, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this coming March. After posting three-consecutive seasons of 1,400+ yards and double-digit touchdowns, he's looking to cash in.

The Denver Broncos, under the front office leadership of John Elway, have been negotiating with Thomas since before 2014 training camp to get a long-term extension ironed out, but the two camps have been unable to come to an agreement.

Although Thomas has indicated that he's willing to give the Broncos a bit of a "hometown discount" to stay in Denver, he's still looking for top-5 money in a new deal. And he deserves it. Speculation has been rampant whether the Broncos will franchise tag Thomas, if they don't have an extension signed by the deadline.

USA Today's Lindsay Jones spoke with Elway today at the NFL Scouting Combine and indeed confirmed the Broncos intentions, putting the speculation to rest.

It certainly makes sense. The team doesn't want to risk losing a transcendent talent like Thomas (yes, I said it). Most informed predictions on the franchise tag dollar figure for wide receivers put it at $12.80M.

NFL FEATURES

Tagging Thomas also has the added benefit of providing the Broncos additional time to negotiate with Thomas and his representatives on an extension, without having to compete with other NFL clubs. If they're unable to come to an accord, Thomas will likely sign his franchise tag, which would guarantee the entire $12.80M for 2015.

With a projected $27M in available salary cap space, tagging Thomas would consume about half of the Broncos cap capital. This has led to the speculation that the big delay in an official announcement from Peyton Manning that he will indeed return to the Broncos, is that Elwaty might want him to take a pay cut.

More on that topic later.

Update

ESPN Denver's Jeff Legwold is reporting that the Broncos are expected to tag Thomas with the "Non-Exclusive Tag", which means that other teams can attempt to sign him to an offer sheet, but the Broncos would get the opportunity to match. If the Broncos chose not to match, said team would have to relinquish two first round picks--a very tall order.

John Elway confirms the Broncos will use franchise tag on Demaryius Thomas if both sides can't reach new deal immediately.
