Thurman Thomas Bills to retire Thurman Thomas' number

No. 34 with the Buffalo Bills will forever belong to Thurman Thomas.

On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills announced that they will retire Thurman Thomas' jersey number, No. 34, before their Week 8 clash with the New England Patriots next season. Knowing that you were walking out on the football field and the fans felt the same way you felt, that whatever team we were getting ready to play, they were going to get their butt whooped. "I'm overwhelmed", Thomas wrote on Twitter.

The Buffalo Bills will be retiring their third jersey number in franchise history this season, and frankly it seems long overdue. The team will honor Thomas in a ceremony when it hosts the New England Patriots for Monday Night Football on October 29.

Thomas is the Bills' all-time leading rusher in both yardage (11,938) and touchdowns (65).

Thomas joins former teammates Jim Kelly and Bruce Smith as players who have had their jersey numbers retired by the Bills.

The 40th overall pick of the 1988 draft out of Oklahoma State, Thomas became an integral part of the Bills' offense immediately.

Thomas was a five-time Pro Bowler, two-time first-team All-Pro and the 1991 NFL Most Valuable Player.

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in his second year of eligibility, in 2007.
