UPDATES & NEWS
Friday brought multiple reports that the Broncos have made a five-year offer to receiver Demaryius Thomas. A source with direct knowledge of the situation said that an offer has not been made to Thomas, on a five-year deal or any other terms.
OK, so no offer to Thomas. It may have been a mistake if he had signed it anyway, so it's good that he doesn't even have to deal with the temptation. Of course, these rumors do come from somewhere and that usually means that people inside are talking. We'll see if anything comes of this, but for now, Thomas' fantasy value doesn't change at all.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
