Denver Broncos TE Julius Thomas has received some reps with the first-team offense during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: The Broncos already have two dependable TEs in Jacob Tamme and Joel Dreessen, but the 6-foot-5, 245-pound Thomas, a former college hoops player, would provide more athleticism down the seam after missing most of the 2012 season with an ankle injury that required offseason surgery.

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox said TE Julius Thomas is a young
player that he wants to have a bigger role next season.
Huddle Up: Thomas crept on to a few preseason sleeper lists 2 years ago when he
was a fourth-round pick out of Portland State but injuries and his
slow development as a blocker has limited him to a handful -- 9 to
be exact -- of games so far. The Broncos, though, have kept Thomas
around so they evidently still see some potential.
