Three franchise-tagged players received mega contracts on Wednesday, the last day they were able to agree to long-term deals with their current teams.
Let’s hear it for Dez, who was not shy about his threats to hold out prior to signing his five-year, $70 million deal.
Can I get #88 with side order of #83 with an extra #11 and a large #82 and a #9 for for dessert😁. #CowboyNation

Couldn't be happier for my guy @DezBryant . Nobody deserves it more… just make sure you don't forget your wallet at the next dinner 88.

How about Demaryius?

Thrilled to reach a long-term deal with Demaryius. He is one of the NFL’s top WRs & will continue to be a big part of the Broncos' success!!

We can’t forget how this impacts fantasy football.
Demaryius Thomas also signs a $70M, 5 year contract with the Broncos. The two top WR got paid a ton of cash today but good for fantasy.

Houston is thankful, but others question his lofty salary.
