Third-year tight end finally healthy and it shows

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The most intriguing new face turning heads at the Denver Broncos' offseason workouts isn't Montee Ball or Sylvester Williams. It's third-year tight end Julius Thomas.

The 6-foot-5, 255-pound former power forward is finally healthy after spending the bulk of his first two seasons with the Denver Broncos dealing with a bum right ankle.

Treating every practice like it's game day, Thomas is finally flashing the skills that made him an attractive prospect coming out of Portland State in 2011 even though he had played just one season of college football.

Last week, he outraced the safeties and hauled in a 50-yard TD pass from Peyton Manning. This week, he stretched out his long, lean body for a one-handed grab in the flat before weaving his way into the end zone.
