Former Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, 33, announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday.
“I’m Demaryius Thomas, and I’ve finally come to a decision to hang it up,” Thomas said in a video on the team’s official Twitter page. “I’m going to retire, and I’m going to retire a Denver Bronco.”
Thomas entered the league as a first-round pick out of Georgia Tech with the Broncos in 2010. He went on to spend the first eight and a half seasons of his career in Denver before being traded to the Houston Texans in 2018.
