Denver Broncos coach Vance Joseph is already asserting himself with the team’s star players. He’s letting it be known he expects more, especially from wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.
Thomas has had five consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Yet, Joseph is sending a memo telling Thomas he expects him to take the next step as a player.
“He’s a great player,’’ Joseph said, per Mike Klis of KUSA in Denver. “He can take over a game, but I want his mindset every game to be every game we play to walk on the field and take over the game. Again, running the football will force them to load up the box and give him 1-on-1 opportunities. I want him to win every 1-on-1. I want him to become a leader of our football team.”
