No matter what Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas does the rest of his career, he'll likely always be associated with an 80-yard touchdown reception from Tim Tebow in overtime to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of last year's playoffs. Those who watched Thomas towards the end of last season were hardly surprised he was on the receiving end of one of the most memorable plays of the year. In December and January, Thomas had 35 catches for 745 yards and four touchdowns.

Thomas' biggest problem in Denver has simply been health. As OTA workouts continue in Denver, Thomas has a new plan for staying on the field. As he told the Denver Post:

"I actually trimmed down a little to 228," he said. ""I played 232 last year. I want to play at 222."

Thomas played in 11 games last season and 10 games as a rookie.
