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

"Thomas will join quarterback Jim Kelly and defensive end Bruce Smith to receive such recognition from the Bills".

The Bills have announced they will retire the number 34 during halftime at the team's home Monday Night Football game against the New England Patriots in Week 8 of the upcoming season.

Thomas had quite the historic career in Buffalo, rushing for over 1,000 yards in each season from 1989-1996. He racked up 11,938 rushing yards, 4,341 receiving yards and 87 total touchdowns across 173 regular-season games.

34 jersey will be retired by the franchise on October 29 when the team faces the New England Patriots, the Bills announced on Wednesday.

To steal one of the many replies from Bills fans to this tweet, this was LONG overdue.

No other player in Buffalo Bills history will don a jersey with the number worn by Thurman Thomas.

On eight consecutive occasions did Thomas eclipse the 1,000-yard mark during his National Football League career. A knee injury damaged Thomas's certain first-round pick status and caused him to slip into the second round (40th overall) of the 1988 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills, their first choice in the draft. Kelly famously led the team to four straight Super Bowls, but unfortunately walked away with zero rings.
