DENVER, CO (The Spread) - Mike Klis of 9News.com reports that the Broncos recently offered receiver Demaryius Thomas a long-term contract.

The offer would reportedly make Thomas the NFL's second-highest paid receiver behind Lions' wideout Calvin Johnson, and just ahead of Mike Wallace's $12 million per-year rate. Thomas is currently unsigned after Denver placed its franchise tag on him earlier this offseason. If the two sides don't come to an agreement on a new deal by Wednesday, Thomas will be forced to play on a one-year tender at just under $12 million for 2015.

Earlier Monday, a source told Pro Football Talk that a deal is "not likely" to be signed between Thomas and the Broncos. Unlike Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, Thomas has not threatened the Broncos with a holdout but things could change quickly if the Denver wideout feels slighted by the team's decision not to pay him in the ballpark of Johnson.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Broncos are currently 12/1 to win the 2016 Super Bowl and 5/1 to win the AFC Conference Championship.
