ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — It's been more than a week now since legendary Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas was traded to the Houston Texans, but ol' No. 88 has found a way to stay front and center in the headlines through it all.
The latest chapter in this ugly-divorce story stems from an interview Thomas did with former Broncos Ray Crockett and Rod Smith on Orange & Blue 760 earlier this week.
In the fiery interview, Thomas makes five eye-opening statements, claims or accusations:
That Broncos head coach Vance Joseph lied to him about trade rumors, stating, "It's not true."
That Joseph and Elway wanted to trade him because they believed he was "the problem" on offense.
That "every player" told him they voted for him yet he wasn't named a captain, and he was "heartbroken" about it.
That receiver coach Zach Azzanni disrespected him by asking him, not anyone else, to come out of the Jets game in order for DaeSean Hamilton to get more reps.
That Broncos coaches would not listen to his suggestions on in-game adjustments.

On Wednesday, the head coach was given a chance to respond.
