Former Denver Broncos wide receiver and one of their all-time greats, Demaryius Thomas, has passed away at age 33.
Heartbreaking news today as reports have surfaced that former Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas has passed away at the age of 33. No details are known at this time. Our collective hearts mourn DT and his family.
Thomas was drafted by the Broncos in the first round of the 2010 draft a few spots ahead of Tim Tebow. He would finish near the top of every meaningful receiving record in Broncos history. In nine seasons with Denver he piled up 665 receptions for 9055 yards and 60 touchdowns.
He is one of just four players to notch 90 catches, 1200 yards, and at least 5 touchdown receptions in four consecutive seasons. The other three were Marvin Harrison, Jerry Rice, Torry Holt.
While he was a great player, he was an even greater person. His quiet demeanor and desire to compete made him one of the more likeable players in Denver during his time there. He will forever be in our hearts. Rest in peace, DT.
Demaryius Thomas was special. Incredible to watch.
Rest in peace to the Super Bowl Champion, the 5x Pro Bowler, the 2x All-Pro.
Thank you for leaving the legacy behind we all got to watch and enjoy. Praying for his family and friends.
