Dymonte Thomas

Not a lot has been heard about in regards to Dymonte Thomas. But with the depth ahead of him, that is to be expected. Most of his playing time is on special teams.

His name was heard late in the season as he intercepted a Baker Mayfield pass in the Broncos regular season game against the Cleveland Browns. It would be Thomas’ first career interception. It stalled a Browns drive as they were looking to get some points before the half.

If he is retained by the Denver Broncos, I would really like to see how Vic Fangio utilizes him. He appears to have a lot of potential. But because he rarely sees the field, we have yet to see that.

Hopefully that can happen in 2019.
