Thurman Thomas to Have His No. 34 Jersey Retired by Bills

Thurman Thomas to Have His No. 34 Jersey Retired by Bills”

The team announced Wednesday that the number will officially be retired in a ceremony on October 29, when the Bills host the Patriots on "Monday Night Football". This is where I saw the fans cheering us on. "Having my number retired is something special and something I'll remember for the rest of my life". They're part of the reason I played and loved the game so much, because the energy they gave myself and Steve (Tasker) and Jim (Kelly) and everybody else was fantastic.

The Buffalo Bills will no longer have a No. 34 on the roster.

"I guess it kind of solidifies the top three guys for this organization", Thomas said.

Thomas joins Jim Kelly, whose number 12 was retired in 2001, and Bruce Smith, whose number 78 was retired in 2016, as Bills players who have been given the same honor. "This is not just 34 jersey being retired". He totaled 1,244 rushing yards and added 669 receiving yards; his 1,913 yards from scrimmage led the NFL - and he'd do it again in 1990, 1991 and 1992, the only man in league history to win the yards from scrimmage title four consecutive seasons.

Thomas will become the third player to have his number retired.

A second-round pick in 1988, Thomas was a two-time All-American for Oklahoma State. He earned five Pro Bowl selections and won four AFC Championships with the Bills.
