No franchise tag for Broncos' Julius Thomas
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

The Broncos will not use their franchise tag on TE Julius Thomas. The team instead tagged WR Demaryius Thomas. 

Julius Thomas will be able to become a free agent on March 10. He had 43 catches for 489 yards and 12 touchdowns last year. Thomas made $645,000 salary last year.

Broncos place franchise tag on Demaryius Thomas
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Broncos have placed the nonexclusive franchise tag on wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, the team announced Monday.

The two sides were unable to come to terms on a long-term deal before Monday, which is the deadline for teams to use the franchise tag, but will presumably keep working towards a deal. The use of the tag on the wide receiver means that tight end Julius Thomas is headed for free agency if the Broncos do not re-sign him before March 10.

Report: Should be a 'very active market' for Broncos' Julius Thomas
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Broncos tight end Julius Thomas turned down a five-year, $40 million contract for a reason. That's because it's believed he will have a "very active market" when the new league year begins on March 10, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. 

Two teams that are expected to target Thomas in free agency are the Raiders and Jaguars, both of which need to upgrade considerably at their skill positions to help out their young quarterbacks. The expectation is for Broncos general manager John Elway to let Thomas test the waters in free agency to see what he's offered. 

The Falcons have also reportedly been interested, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter. 

Injuries slowed what was an otherwise fast start to his 2014 season. Thomas' season ended with 489 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Broncos defensive lineman Mitch Unrein hopeful to remain with team
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Broncos defensive lineman Mitch Unrein is set to become a free agent this offseason, but he is hopeful to re-sign with the club, according to the team's website.

"Hopefully I can be back in Denver because this is the place I want to be and the only place I want to be," Unrein said. "Only time will tell, but it's been a good offseason. It hasn't snowed too much—it's snowing tonight, obviously, but it's just good to be in Colorado, no matter what it's doing outside."

Unrein has spent all five seasons in the league with the Broncos, totaling 49 tackles in 54 games. He only played eight games in 2014.

"I had Kubiak my rookie year when I was down in Houston—great guy, great motivator," he said. "Unfortunately, I wasn't good enough my rookie year to stick on that team but hopefully I'm good enough this time to stick on this team. The D-line coach, Bill Kollar, great motivator. He gets anyone to work for him. Blood, sweat and tears, as they say, for that guy. So I'm looking forward to it, and hopefully be here in Denver next year."

Report: Peyton Manning, Broncos working on restructured deal
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

More evidence points to Peyton Manning playing in 2015. 

According to The Denver Post, the Broncos and Manning are working together on a restructured contract. Manning is slated to make $19 million per season in 2015 and 2016. The Broncos could be working on this deal to create some space to bring back receiver Demaryius Thomas and/or tight end Julius Thomas, both of which will be free agents. 

The restructuring of the deal is perhaps why Manning has yet to make an announcement that he's returning for the 2015 season. 

Manning threw for 4,727 yards, 39 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 2014.
