Broncos listening to offers for WR Thomas

The Broncos are reportedly "listening to offers" for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas per ESPN's Adam Schefter, potentially open to dealing the four-time Pro Bowler prior to the October 30 trade deadline.

According to Klis, the two are available in part because of rookies pushing for their jobs behind them - Courtland Sutton at wide receiver and Josey Jewell at linebacker.

The 30-year-old veteran has the pedigree of a No. 1 wide receiver, but his production doesn't always match his potential.

The 30-year-old Thomas is seemingly viewed as expendable because the team selected 6-3, 218-pound receiver Courtland Sutton in the second round of this year's National Football League draft.


The five-time Pro Bowl receiver has 372 catching yards for three touchdowns through the first seven weeks of the season.

Some teams have also expressed interest in Emmanuel Sanders, but Denver has not been interested in listening to teams asking about him, according to sources. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in 2020 and is owed $10.25 million in base salary for the 2019 campaign.

It doesn't appear any trade is imminent, but Denver "hasn't rebuffed" teams who have called inquiring about Thomas, per Schefter.

The NFL's trade deadline is Tuesday, Oct. 30.
