Derrick Thomas to be Honored at ArrowheadDecember 3rd, 2009 by Lee Eldridge
This Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will be honoring my all-time favorite Chief, Derrick Thomas. The Chiefs will be honoring Derrick for his entry into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and will be retiring his jersey. Thomas will be the 10th player in franchise history to have his jersey retired, joining fellow Pro Football Hall of Famers K Jan Stenerud (3), QB Len Dawson (16), CB Emmitt Thomas (18), LB Willie Lanier (63), LB Bobby Bell (78) and DT Buck Buchanan (86), as well as RB Abner Haynes (28), RB Stone Johnson (33) and RB Mack Lee Hill (36).
I wrote this about Derrick’s induction in the HOF a few months ago.
