AROUND THE WEB:

“F— Tom Brady! But he’s great!” Thomas said to the camera while at the Velvet Elvis Grille in Milledgeville, Georgia. The unidentified man with Thomas in the video assured everyone there is no ill-will between Thomas and Brady and said “He’s kidding!”

Thomas is also seen dancing shirtless on top of the bar and buying drinks for other club-goers.

NFL roundup: 49ers LB Aldon Smith denies DUI after alleged hit-and-run 08.07.15 at 1:07 pm ET

Troubled 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith denied he was driving under the influence after being arrested Thursday night for hit-and-run, DUI and vandalism in Santa Clara, California.

Smith, speaking to KGO in San Francisco as he left jail Friday morning, apologized to fans.

“The people who are faithful remain faithful,” Smith said. “Simple as this: Justice will be served, the truth will come out, there’€™s no DUI. I’m sorry for anybody I let down, I’m sorry for the way this whole thing … I need to speak and I want everybody to understand, this wasn’t a DUI, the situation I had could have been handled differently and I apologize for everybody I did let down and I apologize for how it all played out. But as far as everything is concerned, it will work out the way it’s supposed to work out. That’s all.”

Smith has had trouble with the law on numerous occasions in the past. This is his fifth arrest since 2012. Smith also was suspended for nine games last season for violating the NFL’s personal-conduct and substance-abuse policies.

— At age 39, Peyton Manning is facing some doubts for one of the first times in his career. The legendary quarterback sputtered at the end of the last season and played more than a month with a torn right quad.

Any questions that surround Manning as he enters his 18th season have not permeated his receiving corps. All-Pro wideout Demaryius Thomas said Thursday that Manning has shown good arm strength thus far in training camp.

“He’s smiling. I feel like he’s good,” Thomas said after practice. “I don’t know if you all are going to believe what I say, but I think it’s a little more zip on it. I don’t know how he can do that. He’s an older guy — one of the oldest guys on the team — but I feel like every year around this time, there’s almost more zip on his ball. You can notice it. He threw a couple posts, probably 50, 60 yards, and I’m like, ‘Whoa.’ ”

The Patriots’ 2013 season was not quite like the ones fans are used to.

Sure, New England boasted a solid 12-4 record, clinched the AFC East well before season’s end, earned a first-round bye and breezed past its divisional-round opponent to reach its third straight AFC championship game. But this Patriots team limped its way through the season as a group pillaged by losses to a number of key players.

It started with tight end Aaron Hernandez, who was arrested weeks before training camp and subsequently released by the team before being charged with murder. But that was just the start of the Pats‘ woes, as the likes of Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo and Rob Gronkowski were lost for the season with major injuries.

However, fans still sought that coveted fourth Vince Lombardi trophy after the Patriots won five of their last six regular-season games to win their fifth straight division title, then crushed the Colts, 43-22, led by 166 yards and four touchdowns from LeGarrette Blount.

Up next, as expected, was Peyton Manning and the top-seeded Broncos. It would be the 15th time Tom Brady and Manning would square off, the fourth time they would meet in the playoffs and their second matchup of the season.

The Patriots rallied from a 24-0 halftime deficit to beat the Broncos, 34-31, in overtime at Gillette Stadium in the regular season. But with a 13-3 record to end the year, the Broncos hosted the Jan. 19 meeting for the right to play in the Super Bowl.

With all that was unique and difficult about the Patriots’ season, one thing was similar to the year before: It ended with a disappointing loss in the conference title game.

This time, the Broncos manhandled the Patriots defense for 507 total yards in a 26-16 beatdown in a game that wasn’t as close as the scoreboard read.

“You can’t win when you can’t get off the field,” defensive end Rob Ninkovich said after the game. “That’s basic fundamental football. They do a good job of keeping the sticks moving with various formations.”

By   |  Comments Off on Broncos Demaryius Thomas injured on big hit

Rookie wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, the Broncos top draft pick, was injured during Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. Thomas was hit hard on a second-quarter kickoff return and fumbled the ball to the Ravens in the process. Thomas took a hit from Jason Phillips at the Denver 16 and Ken Hamlin recovered the fumble for the Ravens. Thomas’ head was whipped to one side and crumpled to the ground after the hit; he was down on the field for several minutes while being treated by medical officials until getting to the sideline under his own power.

Officials said Thomas suffered head and neck injuries, according to Fanhouse. The athletic receiver will not return to action during the game. Thomas had two catches for 12 yards before the injury.
