Thomas Jacksonville-Bound

Former Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas will sign with the Jacksonville Jaguars, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Denver Post writer Mike Klis tweeted that the Broncos didn’t even make a call.

The Broncos elected to franchise tag wide receiver Demaryius Thomas earlier in March, so their priorities were clearly set on a long-term deal with the wideout, not the tight end.

Regardless, Julius had two 12-touchdown campaigns while with the Broncos. He was a fourth round pick in 2011 out of Portland State.

With one season of NFL experience and now a perennial red zone threat, second-year quarterback Blake Bortles should improve on his numbers from 2014.
