Julius Thomas is the hottest tight end on the free agent market after the Broncos failed to use their franchise tag on the coveted tight end; instead choosing to tag their other Thomas…Demaryius.  With Julius hitting the market as an unrestricted free agent he will not be short for interest from NFL teams.

The tight end position has been transformed over the past few years in the NFL, with the receiving ends who can run and catch greatly outweighing the old-school blocking ends that dominated the NFL for much of the previous four decades.

Rumors have been rampant that the Seahawks, who just released their top tight end Zach Miller, will be one of the teams putting together a hefty offer for the 26 year old Thomas.  Seattle is in need of offensive playmakers, outside of their running back Marshawn Lynch and quarterback Russell Wilson.  Matt Borcas of Grantland has some insider information on where Julius Thomas might end up, and his source can be considered reliable….Julius’ dad, who happens to have a man crush on Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.

No doubt, Thomas would be an upgrade for the Seahawks passing game, especially in the red zone.  Thomas has caught 24 touchdowns in 27 games the past two years for the Broncos, while the Seahawks have tallied 13 touchdowns by the tight end position in the past 32 games.  If Seattle can fit Thomas and his soon-to-be large contract under the salary cap, it would not be surprising to the Seahawks return to the Super Bowl, again.
