Description: Tight end Julius Thomas has signed with Jacksonville.
Insight: It is a five-year, $46 million deal, which is absurd money for a tight end. Thomas' value will dip in Jacksonville.

Description: A report in the Denver Post has Broncos tight end Julius Thomas as not likely to re-sign with the team.
Insight: Denver has 12 unrestricted free agents in all and Demaryius Thomas tops the list as a must sign. Julius Thomas appears to be headed elsewhere as the team won't be able to meet his high salary request. Jacksonville or Atlanta could be his landing spot.

Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas looked poised to have another big day versus the Colts after the first drive, but had just an average fantasy day overall.
Insight: Thomas made a 32-yard catch on the opening offensive drive for Denver that brought the Broncos down to the two-yard line. On the next play, Peyton Manning targeted Thomas again in the end zone, and defensive holding was called on the incomplete pass. Remember, Thomas destroyed the Colts in the red zone during the Week 1 contest with three touchdown catches. That drive, however, ended with a Demaryius Thomas touchdown catch, and it was the only one of the day for Denver. J. Thomas finished with six catches and 53 yards.

Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas has practiced all week, but there are conflicting reports as to the health of his ankle.
Insight: Some say it's less than 100 percent even with the week off. It should be noted that he torched the Colts in Week 1 for 104 yards and three touchdowns and Indianapolis gave up the fourth-most points to opposing tight ends this season.

Description: Broncos tight end Julius Thomas said the bye week did his ankle a lot of good, according to Larry Hartstein of cbssports.
Insight: Considering Thomas was a non-factor for the final over the final six games of the season (five receptions, 66 yards, zero touchdowns), it could signal his return to a first half production level.
