While he may not have the same legendary reputation of some Denver Broncos players from the 90's, Demaryius Thomas is No. 2 in franchise history in both receiving yards (9,055) and touchdowns (60), only trailing Rod Smith in each stat.

Thomas was traded away during the 2018 season, but he is clearly still loyal to Denver, and he seems to view himself as a life-long Bronco.

Thomas' future looked to be in jeopardy after he tore his Achilles tendon at the end of the 2018 season, playing with the Houston Texans, but he showed he still has plenty left in the tank playing for the New York Jets in 2019. He racked up 36 receptions and 433 yards on 58 targets across 11 games.

Thomas also mentioned in the interview that he would love to return to play for the Broncos, and that could be a very good fit for 2020.

With budding stars in Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant likely being joined by a top WR prospect, Thomas would be a great complement as a veteran presence providing solid depth. He's also not likely to command much in the way of salary.

Whether he plays for Denver in 2020 or not, Thomas is a franchise legend. It's great to see that he views himself as a Denver Bronco at heart.
