This Just In: Somebody Is Going To Pay Julius Thomas A Lot Of Money (2/28 12:17 PT)

fantasy football player photo The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... Reportedly seeking a near record in guarantees for TEs, Thomas has rejected a five-year, $40 million offer that wasn't structured to his specifications. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport expects GM John Elway to let Thomas test his value on the open market -- unless Peyton Manning goes to bat for one of his favorite targets. Thomas will have a "very active market" for his services with Jacksonville and Oakland as potential landing spots, per Rapoport. Atlanta has also been mentioned as a likely suitor.  Reported by

Diehards Line: Well that's going way out on a limb. ... For starters, all of that has been previously reported. And there are questions in Denver about the former college hoops star's injury history as well as his fit in Gary Kubiak's scheme that requires tight ends to do more blocking on cutback runs. And the fact there will be a number of suitors also makes sense. As suggests, Thomas isn't merely a product of Manning's offense. His emergence as a mismatch for linebackers and safeties was the engine that drove the Broncos' record-breaking attack in 2013. Despite missing considerable time in 2014, Thomas still became the first tight end in NFL history with at least 12 touchdowns in back-to-back years.

Would Cardinals Make A Play For Adrian Peterson? (2/28 12:10 PT)

fantasy football player photo The Facts: Following up on the ongoing story. ... In two years on the job, Cardinals GM Steve Keim has been pragmatic in making trades and signing players in free agency. Chasing names and reputations has not been his style. Peterson is different. He's still in his prime and the Cardinals need a durable, physical runner. If the Vikings are open to trading Peterson, or if they end up releasing him, Keim has to be interested. Reported by the Arizona Republic

Diehards Line: So wrote Republic staffer Kent Somers, who reminded readers that taking OT Levi Brown instead of Peterson with the fifth overall pick in 2007 turned out to be a colossal mistake. Eight years later, the Cardinals might -- and it's impossible to put too much emphasis on "might" -- have another opportunity to acquire Peterson. The buzz surrounding the Peterson-Cardinals connection started when Somers suggested such a pairing during a radio spot. It gained momentum when Peterson's father, Nelson, told the St. Paul Pioneer-Press he's heard rumors that the Cardinals, Colts and Cowboys would be interested. Of course, the Vikings insist they want Peterson back, although the running back told he is "uneasy" about returning to the team. The salary cap complicates matters, too. But the issue wouldn't be insurmountable. It's not a given that Peterson will be on the market soon, perhaps not ever. It might take months for the NFL's appeal to be heard. But if he's available, Somers contends "the Cardinals won't pass on Peterson as easily as they did the first time."
