Georgia Police confirmed they found Demaryius Thomas dead in his home Thursday night, December 9th. As of this writing, there isn't any foul play suspected and it's being reported by TMZ that his death possibly stems from a health issue. The football world is hurting. Broncos Country is hurting. It's almost impossible to believe that at the young age of 33, Demaryius Thomas, is no longer with us. He just retired from the NFL six months ago and was going to turn 34 on Christmas day.
Here are some of the reactions from friends, family, fans, and sports lovers alike:
Being a Denver Broncos fan my whole life, I was lucky enough to have seen Demaryius Thomas in action many, many times. My favorite all-time DT memory? Denver Broncos vs. Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs tied at 23 headed to overtime. I remember telling my friend, Dan, who took me to the game, "here comes another run on 1st and 10" and before you knew it, Tim Tebow launched the ball to DT and he was off to the races! That crowd at Empower Field at Mile High was the LOUDEST I had ever heard it and I've been to probably 50+ Broncos games. It was unbelievable. It was history, and it was the start of a really special career for Demaryius Thomas. It's hard to believe that he's gone. At 33, it's just hard to process.
Rest in Peace, DT. Thanks for the Memories.
