The Denver Broncos are looking to work on the No Fly Zone after losing two key players the last two seasons. Can Dymonte Thomas create a splash?

Denver’s No Fly Zone has taken quite the hit in the last two offseasons. T.J. Ward was a surprise cut one year removed from a Super Bowl title. The team also traded Aqib Talib this offseason to the Los Angeles Rams. Only Chris Harris Jr. and Darian Stewart are still here from the Super Bowl 50 season, other than Bradley Roby. One player that made some noise in the preseason last year was Dymonte Thomas.

The Michigan Wolverine signed with Denver last year as an undrafted free agent. While he did not see the field a lot, he got his time to shine during the preseason finale last year. Against the Arizona Cardinals, he intercepted a pass from Trevor Knight and ran it back 58 yards for the score.

What impressed me the most on that pick-six was his speed. There were at least two defenders closing in on him. But he outraced them to the end zone.

Earlier in the offseason, Cody Roark discussed Dymonte Thomas as a player to look out for in 2018. Fast forward six months, and there is still a lot of truth to this.

While the safety position is occupied with Justin Simmons and Will Parks, Dymonte Thomas can still make a splash when it comes to special teams and playing backup. What separates him from the others is his speed.

With Darian Stewart getting up there in age, we could see a bit more of Thomas on the field as well. Having him covering the field looking out for the quarterback’s pass could prove to be helpful.

As of now, he and Stewart are the only free safeties on the roster. The chance of Dymonte Thomas making the roster are looking good. But he will have to perform well in the next six weeks.
