ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Tim Tebow is missing the Denver Broncos' first day of workouts for rookies and injured players because he has yet to sign a contract.
Tebow was selected 25th in the draft after winning two national titles at Florida.
He said last month that he didn't want to miss a single practice as he makes his transition from college star to NFL quarterback. But he can't show up without his signature on a contract that's expected to be worth $12 million over five years.
Also missing Wednesday's workout was unsigned receiver Demaryius Thomas, selected 22nd overall.
He and Tebow won't be considered holdouts, however, unless they remain unsigned when the full squad reports for practice Sunday.
