ROSWELL — The NFL community is grieving after former Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas dropped dead Thursday night inside his home in Roswell, Georgia. He was only 33. Thomas would’ve turned 34 on Christmas. Coroners said his quietus was tied to a medical issue but they wouldn’t specify what. Now rumor has it Thomas suffered from CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy) and there’s scuttlebutt of suicide. A close source also claims he’s fully vaccinated. Thomas was selected 22nd overall by the Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft. He helped Peyton Manning and the donkeys win Super Bowl 50 in 2016. He also made five Pro Bowls in nine seasons. Thomas posted a video in June to announce his retirement. “I’m Demaryius Thomas. I finally came to a decision to hang it up,” he said. “I’m going to retire and I’m going to retire a Denver Bronco … I’m done and I did well.”
Quondam teammates and coaches took to social media to transmit their condolences. Broncos wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni tweeted, “I’m so sad … I’m heartbroken. I’m at a total loss. I’m sick … I’m crying I’m just … I don’t know. The Azzanni family will always love you DT. I’m blessed to have known you. RIP #88.” Retired defensive end DeMarcus Ware shared a photo of himself and Thomas with the caption “heartbroken” while Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall posted “Love forever bro.”
Thomas’ incredible métier includes 724 receptions for 9,763 yards and 63 touchdowns.
