Demaryius Thomas Excited For New Season Ahead
The Denver Broncos had their second day of OTA’s on Tuesday. Demaryius Thomas expresses how excited he is and ready for the challenge of the new head coach.
Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has had a very uneventful past two seasons for the Denver Broncos. His new head coach has been watching and wants him to return to form.
It is safe to say that Demaryius Thomas is ready for the challenge. He listened to Vance Joseph loud and clear.
The veteran wide receiver met with the media today and talked about his plans for 2017. He also expressed his excitement working with Mike McCoy again.
When talking about hearing from his new head coach, this is what Thomas had to say.
"“It means a lot [for Joseph to say that] Definitely, the first thing I thought was more opportunities and chances to get the ball more, but also [that I can] be that guy to get the offense sparking. I’m excited about it and I look forward to it. I just have to step up to the plate.”"
During Peyton Manning’s first three years with the Denver Broncos, Demaryius Thomas saw numbers belonging to a number one receiver.
The numbers he had with Peyton Manning for those three years reminds me of what guys like Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham Jr. can do.
Thomas has still recorded at least 1,000 yards the last two seasons. But it seems his numbers have declined a bit.

Demaryius Thomas expressed how much having Mike McCoy back running the offense will help the Broncos tremendously.
"“The sky is the limit. It’s just going out as a group of guys on the offensive side of the ball and executing. We have playmakers and we’ve got good coaches to call the plays. We’ve got two quarterbacks that can play and you’ve got running backs out the backfield, offensive line. It’s all about going out there and executing now.”"
It will be interesting to see how Demaryius Thomas performs in 2017. If he can return to his form from the early Manning years, the sky is the limit for him and the Broncos offense.
