Demaryius Thomas, a four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver with the Denver Broncos, has died, police confirmed Thursday night. He was 33 years old.
Thomas was found dead in his home in Roswell, Ga.
“Preliminary information is that his death stems from a medical issue, and our investigators currently have no reason to believe otherwise,” public information officer Tim Lupo said in a statement early Friday.
Thomas, who announced his retirement from the NFL in June, would have turned 34 on Christmas Day.
Thomas hauled in 63 touchdown passes during his 10-year career, spent mostly in Denver. He finished with 724 catches for 9,763 yards.
The Broncos selected Thomas No. 22 overall in the 2010 draft out of Georgia Tech. Thomas ranks No. 2 in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns on the Broncos’ all-time list, trailing only Rod Smith in both categories.
Thomas won a Super Bowl with the Broncos in 2015 and earned four Pro Bowls in a Broncos uniform.
Thomas was traded to the Houston Texans in 2018 and last played with the New York Jets in 2019, starting 10 of 11 games.
