Broncos wideout Damaryius Thomas excused from training camp
JUL 24, 2014 11:42a ET
Thomas attended the Broncos' team meeting Wednesday, a day after his grandmother died, and received permission from coach John Fox to leave for a few days. He's expected to rejoin his teammates Monday.
Thomas' agent and the Broncos have exchanged proposals on a long-term contract that general manager John Elway wants to get done within the next two weeks so that it doesn't become a distraction.
Thomas caught a team-best 92 passes for 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns last year. He also set a Super Bowl record with 13 receptions.
