Requests for comment from Penn National Gaming and Greenwood over the past two weeks were not returned.
The site plan for the proposed OTB was approved in 2007 during a redevelopment of the former racetrack which closed in 2001. Since then, a bustling retail mecca has populated the site.
Beyond that, though, you run into potential problems. With Bennie Fowler and Cody Latimer gone, it looks like rookie second-round pick Courtland Sutton and unproven sophomores Carlos Henderson and Isaiah McKenzie will be fighting for reps beyond Thomas and Sanders, but they could have used a veteran presence in that mix.
Same goes for the battle at tight end, where Jake Butt (a second-year fifth-round pick with no NFL experience) is trying to beat out 2015 third-round pick Jeff Heuerman (just 18 catches since coming into the league).
It’s possible rookie running back Royce Freeman could pull a Kareem Hunt or Alvin Kamara, but the Broncos would prefer not to rely on something like that happening. Problem is with C.J. Anderson gone, Devontae Booker is the only veteran competing for the job, and the 2016 fourth-round pick has averaged just 3.6 yards per carry.
Even if Thomas and Sanders re-emerge, Keenum will probably have his work cut out for him.
If Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is able to return in 2018 after losing his 2017 season to a lingering shoulder issue, he’ll at least have an elite No. 1 receiver and two talented tight ends at his disposal.
