KUSA - Coming off the greatest season of football he's ever played, Broncos Tight End Julius Thomas says he believes he'll be even better this season.

"I hold myself to a very high standard," said Thomas. "I'm spending a lot of time going back and looking at last year's tape these last couple weeks and just seeing so many areas that I can improve in. By no standards was I my best in any aspect of the game and that's what's really exciting about these offseason OTAs for me is I really get a chance to work on things and improve. Just trying to become more dynamic, just do more things to help out our offense. Allow our coaches to put me in more positions to make it tough on defenses."

Peyton Manning had help with his record breaking year and Julius Thomas played a major part. Manning's 4th favorite receiver, but on this team that's still awfully good. Thomas finished the year with career records for catches(65), touchdowns(12), and yards(788).

"I wouldn't really say it's pressure. To look back and see all the things that I didn't do so great and know how comfortable I am going into this season and how much I've learned, I'm just excited to go out there and show everyone, and show myself how hard I've worked this offseason and more of what I can do."

The Broncos begin their mini camp tomorrow. It's the first time all of the players have to be there, but they've already all been there. This 2014 Broncos team is all in.
