The star receiver also said he'll bypass Peyton Manning's annual passing camp next week at Duke, where the five-time MVP QB works on his timing with his wide receivers. Thomas said if a long-term deal isn't reached, he'd sign the Broncos' $12.823 million franchise tender by the July 15 deadline.
Thomas could always signal his displeasure with the move by waiting to sign the tender and skipping offseason workouts that begin the first week of April. If Thomas doesn't sign a long-term contract, the Broncos could use the franchise tag on him again next year.
He finished with three straight 100-yard efforts and 10 for the season, reaching career highs in receptions (111) and yards (1,619).
Thomas joined Marvin Harrison and Jerry Rice as the only players with three straight seasons of 1,400 yards receiving and 10 touchdown catches.
Thomas caught six balls for 123 yards and one score from the legendary Peyton Manning.
It sounds like Thomas' troublesome ankle contributed to his quiet day. Hopefully he bounces back with a huge game in Week 15.
Thomas leads the NFL with 69 catches for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns since Week 5.
He's gone four straight games without a touchdown reception, but he's now gone over 100 yards in seven straight with a minimum of seven catches.
Though Thomas failed to score for the first time in four games, he's totaled 34 receptions and 626 yards over that span.
Thomas caught eight passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns Sunday night.
