“We have to move on” – The Denver Post

While saying he has “great respect” for former wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Wednesday he was “disappointed” about Thomas’ comments earlier this week about how his nine-year stay in Denver came to an end.

Thomas was traded to the Houston Texans on Oct. 30 and debuted Sunday in a 19-17 win over the Broncos.

Thomas gave an expansive interview Monday night on Orange & Blue 760, a radio station owned by the Broncos.

Thomas asserted Joseph misled him about his future once the trade chatter surfaced Oct. 21.

“I’m disappointed to read those things about how he recalls the conversations going,” Joseph said. “It was obviously a week and a half where the rumors and gossip were flowing and we talked about the rumors and gossip and (how) until something happened, we had to all focus on doing our jobs and winning football games.

“I’m disappointed in how he remembers it.”

Thomas also gave the impression he was upset about not being named a captain. Thomas said teammates asked him: “How (are) you not a captain? We picked you.” The offensive captains are quarterback Case Keenum and now-injured center Matt Paradis.

“Our players vote for the captains,” Joseph said. “They vote for the guys who they see fit to lead the football team.”
