Demaryius Thomas Passes Away | Football Outsiders

NFL Week 14 – Demaryius Thomas, a wide receiver who twice played in the Super Bowl with Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos, has passed away at age 33.

“Thomas was found deceased in his home on Thursday night, the Roswell (Georgia) Police Department confirmed in a statement to NFL Media,” writes NFL.com’s Chase Goodbread. “Preliminary information is that Thomas’ death stems from a medical issue, and Roswell PD investigators currently have no reason to believe otherwise.”

A four-time Pro Bowler, Thomas enjoyed his best season in 2013. He caught 92 passes for 1,430 yards and 14 touchdowns, ranking ninth or higher in each of those categories, and finished first among wide receivers in Football Outsiders’ DYAR.

Tributes from Thomas’ former coaches and teammates, as well as Denver/NFL media, have been flooding social media since new of his passing broke on Thursday night. This post from Nicki Jhabvala, formerly of the Denver Post, is my favorite:
