    Is his beef legit or is he being a prima donna?

    I think his beef is legit. Why keep yanking his chain like that? Be a professional and man up. Either don't say anything or be truthful

    Remember when O'Brien did that to Andre Johnson? Some guys here were saying Dre was wrong for wanting to be more involved, and that he had declined etc.. Im not sure I feel much empathy for Thomas, I get it he got his feelings hurt, but its time to put on your big boy pants and move forward.

    I think it’s somewhere in between. Yeah why keep yanking his chain. Own it. Trading him impacts his life significantly. At the same time... his “but im the vet and he’s the rookie so ask someone else to give up playing time”... was whiny.

    BOB was honest with AJ.

    He told AJ he would probably only catch around 40 balls.

    AJ didn't like it and moved to Indy where he caught 40 balls.

    This is a totally different situation with DT and the Broncos.

    I think it was probably VJ saying one thing, but Elway doing another thing.

    No need to wonder why VJ is losing his team.

    I don't think OB ever walked up to AJ out of the blue and told him he would not be traded. And didn't AJ leave as a free agent? He wasn't traded mid-season was he?

    I don't think VJ cut it as a HC to begin with.
    The only way he can run that team is with Elway and Kubiak shouldering the burden.
    He's like a Yes Man of sort, in my observation.

    Is what it is, here's hoping DT plays rest of season with chip on his shoulder so Texans extend his contract one more year. I approve this post :uprights:

    His contract already goes one more year, but it's cost-prohibitive. It'll be re-done by the Texans or someone else.

    So explain to me the difference in saying "DT I need to give the rook some more time, I need to reduce your role" VS "Andre I need to reduce your role, you will only catch around 40 balls in this offense"

    Promises, shmomises .. who knows what Dre was told behind closed doors other than that. Dre never went public with any grievance simply said "trade me or release me" and the team granted his wish. What he did away from here is incidental because year 10 Andre Johnson is so ridiculously much better than year 10 Demaryious Thomas it doesnt really matter what DT is able to do here, hopefully he stays onsides and continues an upward trajection, well as much as a guy who is declining in year 10 can at least.

    give us 6 catches for 120 yards per game and he will get new deal with reworked 2019 and some bunches of guaranteed money. As with AJ, D Brown and Clowney, earn it and it will be given here on earth as it is in -- uh almost got carried away.

    Plus D.Thomas wasn't trying to get a new contract out of it too. Agreed, totally different scenario.

    That's what I meant, thanks for correction. Can you confirm no dead money hit if they don't?

    Because BOB told AJ in the offseason and out of deference cut AJ to allow AJ to catch on with the Colts. That's not what happened with DT/VJ/Elway and the Broncos.

    At least in DT's perspective, will you be surprised if the team comes out and says the opposite?

    Why would DT come out against the team that one day he will be in their ring of honor if what he was saying wasn't true?

    I think DT knew Broncos FO and Coaches were being shaddy and he's calling them out on it. The shine on Elway is dulling rather quickly.
