Saying he “wanted to finish a Bronco, retire a Bronco,” Denver wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said Friday he’s glad negotiations worked out on a new long-term deal and that he looks forward to helping the team win the Super Bowl, Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com reports.

Thomas, who had been designated as the team’s franchise player, signed a five-year, $70 million deal Wednesday that includes $43.5 million in guarantees.

And though the negotiations came down to the final hours before the deadline for teams to agree with players with the franchise tag, Thomas said he never doubted an agreement would be made.

“No, I didn’t [worry a deal would not get done],” Thomas said. “I kind of knew for a little while I was going to be a Bronco. … Kind of a week before they were going back and forth, I kind of knew.”
