According to Klis, contract talks between the different parties “aren’t dead” but also “aren’t’ active, either.”
Klis points out that Demaryius Thomas is probably waiting to see what happens with the Cowboys and WR Dez Bryant before getting seriously involved in contract negotiations, which makes plenty of sense.
Julius Thomas and his agent have reportedly exchanged contract proposals with the Broncos. However, Klis mentions that it appears as though these talks have stalled in recent weeks.
Demaryius, 26, is clearly one of the best receivers in the game and has earned a sizable raise from the Broncos. As things stand right now, he will make $3.275 million during the final year of his rookie contract.
Last year, Demaryius caught 92 passes for 1,430 yards receiving and a career-high 14 touchdowns over the course of 16 games.
Julius, 25, is coming off of an incredible season and would clearly be a very coveted player on the open market next year. Klis does believe that Thomas has the greater incentive of the two players to work on a new contract based on the fact that he will make just $645,000 for the 2014 season.
In 2013, he totaled 65 receptions for 788 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns.
