The Denver Broncos made sure incoming quarterback Case Keenum has someone to throw to by exercising the contract option on wide receiver Demaryius Thomas.
The move triggers the final two years on Thomas' deal and guarantees him $12.5 million for 2018 -- his $8.5 million base salary and a $4 million bonus, the Denver Post reported, citing a source.
Thomas, 30, had 83 receptions for 983 yards and five touchdowns last season. It ended a string of five consecutive seasons in which he had at least 90 catches and went over 1,000 yards receiving.
Denver reportedly reached agreement on a two-year deal with Keenum, hoping it ends the team's carousel at quarterback.
