Peyton Manning’s fourth (and perhaps final) year in Denver won’t include one of his favorite targets.
Per multiple reports, tight end Julius Thomas plans to sign with the Jaguars on Tuesday.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Thomas chose the Jaguars after aggressive efforts from the Seahawks, Raiders, and Broncos. (Last week, we heard the Seahawks would be a surprise entry in the Julius Thomas sweepstakes.)
Of course, no team is allowed to make any offers during the three-day negotiating window. So nothing is binding on Thomas or the Jaguars. So the other teams involved could still try to make the same kind of push that the Colts apparently have made to get running back Frank Gore to reconsider.
