    Also says that DT doesn't want to leave. Maybe this is DT's way of saying make me an offer at least - don't give me the Eric Decker treatment and not even offer me something. (as unlikely as that would be)
    His situation is nothing like Decker's was.

    Eric is a quality receiver, but nothing really special. A very good #2. DT, is a truly special player.

      So Good chance is that they drive his price up out of our range. What a way of improving your team and hurting the division rival
      They'll never get a chance to drive up the price, if he hasn't agreed before the end of the franchise tag window then they'll quickly slap that on him. I know you're a big Julius Thomas guy, and that's fair, but the more important player for this team is Demaryius Thomas. I would guess Demaryius knows the franchise tag is coming which is why he's willing to take a discount.

        they would be wise to tag DT as the cost would be less (about 4 mil a year) than a full contract, that would mean more money available for the rest of the group including JT.

        Yes I'm a fan of his but no less than for DT, WW, PM, CJ and Sanders.

        you can also throw Green in that mix as I had thought this year they MIGHT throw at him more after he makes a LOS block, but health so far has prevented it.

          When the time is right, hopefully, parade day in Denver, he will just ink his name to a new contract.

            The one thing DT didn't say........





            the "hometown" discount is $9.99 on most days of the week (check your local publications for details).





            (he'll be back!!)

              The problem is rarely because a player won't take a discount; the problem is usually the baseline a player believes he is worth. If DT feels like he's worth $20 million (unrealistic, but exaggerated to make a point), then even an $18 million payday is a "discount." Unfortunately, that's probably a discount the Broncos would not be willing to accept.

              However, if he's realistic about what he's worth - given that his talent, while impressive, isn't Calvin Johnson level - then there should be no problem signing him.
