NFL Network’s Albert Breer shared a link to his 2012 story about the circumstances that surrounded Calvin Johnson’s extension when he signed it. It’s worth reading so everyone understands why the Broncos see Demaryius Thomas’ situation differently (and the same with the Cowboys and Dez Bryant).

Breer also tweeted this reminder:
