As he addressed the media following his new contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars former Broncos tight end Julius Thomas tried to keep a straight face.
“This isn’t about the money. I truly feel like they are building a Super Bowl contender in Jacksonvi….oh nevermind. Who am I kidding? Ha ha! Of course it’s about the money! Are you out of your mind? $20.5 million dollars? Seriously? I can’t stay healthy! I have the ankles of a 90 year old man. I don’t even know who the quarterback is down there in Jacksonville! Blaine Gabbert? Blake Bortles? Tim Tebow? Beats me! Who cares? I just got paid!”
When asked if it would be an adjustment to not be a playoff contender Thomas responded “Oh you mean like how were in the playoffs last year? That lasted about five minutes. Now if you don’t mind, I have to go shopping for my new Florida mansion.”
