A few good questions with Duke Ihenacho and Julius Thomas

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY

MHR spoke briefly with Broncos safety Duke Ihenacho and tight end Julius Thomas on how their respective offseasons are going.

Denver Broncos safety Duke Ihenacho and tight end Julius Thomas gave some time to Strikes For Kids in Las Vegas Saturday night, a charity event for the Make-A-Wish foundation. Mile High Report was also in attendance, and I was able to get a few minutes with Duke and a few seconds with Julius. Check out their quotes below.

Julius Thomas on Peyton Manning's workouts at Duke

"It went great. I'm excited for everyone new we have, and looking forward to make it happen."

(Julius had to leave early to catch a flight, and he was spending every last minute he could taking pictures and signing footballs. I didn't want to interrupt his time with the attendees of the event. I walked with him as he left to ask my one question; I'll get more with him next time.)

Duke Ihenacho on his offseason

"It's good. I can't complain. I've just been working out in L.A. Just taking time off, getting the body right, but I'm excited to get back to work."

Ihenacho on his workouts in L.A.

"I'm training at a place called Stars. I'm training with other NFL athletes, been doing that. I spent last week in Denver, actually, training at the facility. A lot of speed work, a lot of rehab and flexibility stuff. Explosion stuff. This year I'm kind of focusing a lot on my health and my flexibility, and my strength in my legs. So I'm just focusing on that."

Ihenacho on if he will attend the Broncos' voluntary workouts coming up

"Oh man, for me it's not voluntary. It's mandatory man (laughing). 'Voluntary' is not a word for me."

We still remember it, but we're not hanging our heads on the Super Bowl loss anymore. It's time to move forward. Duke Ihenacho

Ihenacho on the sting of the Super Bowl loss

"I mean we're over that. We're over that. Obviously we still remember it, but we're not hanging our heads on the Super Bowl loss anymore. It's time to move forward because we know the future is bright for us. We know everything we want to accomplish is in front of us. You can see the audibles we made in the offseason, and the moves we're going to continue to make. We've got a draft coming up, so we're just going to continue to get better.

"The mission is still the same. Regardless of the loss, or if we had won the Super Bowl, the mission is still the same, and that's to win the Super Bowl. That's how we're going to approach it. There is a sense of urgency. I can't wait to get back to Denver and start working."

Ihenacho also answered a few questions about the Strikes For Kids charity event - be sure to check out those comments here.
