The aforementioned gaudy numbers posted by Julius Thomas didn’t really come as any surprise to Manning’s number one TE option.
"“I’ve talked about it this offseason, how much more comfortable I am and with that comfort comes confidence,” Thomas said. “I’ve been really excited for this season to start because I’ve been working, I’ve been improving. Our coaches have done a great job of getting me ready to go.” “I just want to see how much better I can get. I want to see how many opportunities I can [have] to help my team win. I’m going to continue to keep trying to get better, keep pushing myself because I don’t think I’ve reached my limit yet.”"
