Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas appeared to throw former quarterback Tim Tebow under the bus when he was somewhat critical of him during an interview with an Atlanta radio station Wednesday.
Thomas joined KKFN in Denver via Sportsradiointerviews in an attempt to clarify the remarks he made about Tebow. “I’ve been hearing stuff about, Tebow made me and all this other stuff,” Thomas said. “When I had my interview, I wasn’t trying to go in the interview and just put Tebow down as a quarterback. I was just answering the questions, you know? But ever since the interview, it’s just been — I’ve been getting badmouthed left and right. Like, ‘You’re not a good receiver anyway,’ and all this and that. So I’m just looking over that.”
Thomas added, “What I actually said, I had tried to say something to them about, that I didn’t wanna say it like that, because when I played with Tim, you had to run a route and then maybe he had to scramble. He scrambled sometimes like — toward the end of the season, he scrambled. And you had to be in shape to get running to get open. Like, at the Steelers game, he scrambled and he threw me the first deep ball I caught. So I wasn’t saying it like that. When I first came out, I was hurt. I didn’t play much, I didn’t do nothing. So nobody knew me. And you can’t say that Tim (took) me out there because he gave me the chance to make plays. And I respect that and I love Tim for that. It wasn’t no hard feelings or nothing against Tim. He’s a great player. If we had him, I’d love to have him. If we had him still, there wouldn’t be no problem me playing with him. It’s just that we’ve got another quarterback now. I really don’t talk about much about Tim no more, since he’s not here with us.”
