    That would certainly be nice.



    Shame about JT, it was nice to see him break out with us.


    These things are bound to happen, we do have a pretty stacked team.

    I would give up JT for Jason Witten in a heart beat. Dude brings every attribute we've been craving for these last few years. One could only dream though.

    He cant run block so basically he is kind of like the tight end version of a situational pass rusher. He doesnt play well in the middle of the field and he is pretty limited to only being super effective in the redzone. Basically, hes the anti-Jason Witten. Jason Witten gets 1,000-1,200 yards every year but only 2-4 TDs. Julius gets 500-750 yards a year but 9-12 TDs.

    Bottom line is you dont pay a guy max money who cant pass block and is only super effective in the redzone who also has injury history. He is actually smart to leave Denver and do the Decker thing. He realizes he overachieved like Decker because of Peyton and is lined up for his once-in-a-lifetime payday. Might as well go get paid huge money while you can. Im just not really going to think we lost out on a whole lot if he does leave. Im 100% confident he was a product of Peyton and Owen Daniels or Virgil Green could have similar success. Those two guys are twice the run blockers as Julius and are better TEs in the open field not just relegated to the redzone.

    JT is a basketball player with one year of college football experience and the experience the Broncos have taught him. The guy has played 36 games in 4 years and hasn't played an entire season since the Broncos took a huge chance on him drafting him in the 4th round.

    Let him walk he is not worth the effort as he will never sacrifice for any team.

    Yeah I could definitely see that happening. Bortles needs a good safety valve and they have tons of cap room. Although I wouldn't rule out Oakland or Seattle either. Seattle tried to trade for him before, but that will depend on what kind of market he finds for himself.

    It seems like most people feel J Thomas is a pass catching TE,
    then perhaps D Thomas can fill those shoes. D Thomas played
    in a college system where he was required to block therefore
    he's probably a better blocker than J Thomas already.

    E Sanders.........OT, OG, OC, OG, OT, D Thomas........C Latimer

    D Thomas would cause great problems for defenses similar to Gronk.

    3, 2, 1...flame away.
    Lol no. Not even 1% possible or even a remotely good idea.

    I like your creative thinking.

    JT can say whatever he wants, but the rest of the league is not stupid. No one is going to pay him for a couple half-seasons catching passes from Manning.

    JT is like the Kanye of football right now.

    He was a product of the pass happy system we had employed before we implemented the run. Let him go. His ego will lead to his demise. Hey Decker, try luring JT instead. Stay away from DT.

    LOL. Care to elaborate?

    D Thomas would murder opposing LB's and S's.

    E Sanders vs CB1
    C Latimer vs CB2
    D Thomas vs LB

    He'd be unstoppable!
