Thomas to a new long-term contract. Things seemed dire with about an hour left to go before the deadline, but things changed quickly as Thomas and the Broncos came to an agreement. “We are thrilled to reach a long-term contract agreement with. Thomas was one of two first-round picks by the Broncos in the 2010 NFL draft. In five seasons as a pro, Thomas has totaled 351 receptions for 5,317 yards with 41 touchdowns in 69 regular-season games (55 starts). Teams consider everything when negotiating big-money deals.

com by Ken Sugiura that the Jackets have received interest from two frontcourt players who possibly would like to spend their final year of eligibility playing ball at Georgia Tech. Richmond Spiders forward Alonzo Nelson-Ododa and Arkansas-Little Rock forward James White are both on the Georgia Tech radar after both players listed Tech as a potential transfer spot. It is not like both players would not be able to help the Georgia Tech cause right away. He averaged of 6. 6 points, 5. 1 rebounds, and 1. 7 blocks in 27 games last season. For his career Nelson-Ododa averages 5. 5 points on 43. 4% field goal shooting with 4. 8 rebounds and 2. 0 blocks. James White averaged 11. 9 point, 6. 6 rebounds, and 1. 7 blocks for Arkansas-Little Rock in 15 games last year. They both will obviously bring some experience to the floor for the Yellow Jackets, and add some frontcourt depth to go along with Charles Mitchell, Nick Jacobs, Ben Lammers, Abdoulaye Gueye, and incoming freshman Sylvester Ogbonda. In the eyes of a lot of fans, part of the problem with the Yellow Jackets is that the player development is atrocious.
