Demaryius Thomas will not attend Broncos off-season workouts

It has been an interesting off-season already for the Denver Broncos who have seemingly made it their mission to answer the tough questions.

Their biggest question was focussed on quarterback Peyton Manning as he once again faced the inevitable retirement rumours.

More than just retirement however, Manning was rumoured to be seriously injured this year and retirement was a legitimate option.

Manning has promised to return next year and new Broncos coach Gary Kubiak has made it clear that C.J. Anderson will attend off-season training as the Broncos starting runningback.

Perhaps the biggest problem for the Broncos however will be trying to replace Julius Thomas who left for the Jacksonville Jaguars in free agency.

One of the Broncos first moves in the off-season was to sure up the services of wide receiver Demaryius Thomas who received the franchise tag.

However Thomas has now revealed his off-season plans and it doesn't sound like a man committed to the Denver cause.

Thomas has confirmed that he will not be attending the Manning's annual off-season workouts at Duke University.

Perhaps not the biggest of statements missing the event, Thomas would then quite casually claim that he will "pass on that" when asked if he'll be attending the Broncos off-season program.

"I'll be back in Georgia, trying to get the body right, get the ankle right." - Demaryius Thomas on his off-season plans

The Broncos are set to start their off-season program on April 13th and the franchise and Thomas' representatives are still working to get a long term contract in place.

Big year needed

It may be strange to say that the Broncos need a comeback year after claiming the #2 seed in the AFC last year.

They did however fall to the Indianapolis Colts in the divisional round and for the final few weeks of the regular season were far less than impressive.

The Broncos had an underwhelming season last year and it was largely down to their star man Manning suffering an injury which severely limited his ability on the field.
