The Buffalo Bills to retire Thurman Thomas' number

The Buffalo Bills to retire Thurman Thomas' number
16 May
Not in Hall of Fame

As most of the regular visitors to are aware we are (very) slowly putting together our top 50 players of every franchise in the “Big 4” of North American sports. After that is completed we will take a look at how each organization honors their past players and executives.

As such, it is important to us that the Buffalo Bills have announced that they will be retiring the number 34 of Thurman Thomas.

Thomas was a vital part of the AFC juggernaut that went to four straight Super Bowls from 1990 to 1993. A five time Pro Bowl and two-time First Team All Pro Selection, Thomas rushed for 11,938 Yards with 65 Touchdowns for Buffalo and he would add another 4,341 Yards Receiving with 22 Touchdown Receptions. From 1989 to 1992, he would be the league leader in Yards From Scrimmage. Thomas was named the league MVP in 1991 and e was chosen for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007.

Thomas becomes the third player to have his number retired by the Bills. He joins fellow teammates Jim Kelly (12) and Bruce Smith (78).

We here at would like to congratulate Thurman Thomas on receiving this prestigious honor.
