What Actually Happened?
The Denver Broncos were so impressed by the play of their star tight end, they drafted him in 2010. Thomas went on to play eight and a half seasons for them – catching 665 passes worth 9k yards along with 60 touchdowns; he also had success playing elsewhere after joining Seattle as part-time player before returning back home where it all started!
Thomas ranks No. 2 in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns on the Broncos’ all-time list, trailing only Rod Smith (11,389; 68).
He had a decorated career in the NFL, with him playing for six different teams. After winning Super Bowl 50 with Denver, he went on to play two and half more seasons before being traded away- first by Houston then New England where it all ended up finishing up at home plate last year when Thomas retired from football officially after 8 years as well!
Damn, gone way too soon. RIP, Demaryius Thomas. A Broncos legend.pic.twitter.com/5c0UyYREjU
