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

"I live here. I'm still involved with the community and still involved with the Buffalo Bills".

Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas, who spent 12 seasons with the Bills from 1988-1999, is set to be honored prior to the team's October 29 game against the New England Patriots.

Thomas will be just the third player in Buffalo Bills history to have his number retired, joining two men he played with for years: quarterback Jim Kelly and defensive end Bruce Smith.

When it's your birthday AND you find out your number is getting retired. "I'm overwhelmed", Thomas wrote on Twitter.

The Buffalo Bills are going to retire the jersey of one of their legendary players.

Thomas was named the NFL's most valuable player in 1991.

Thomas wore #34 in all three levels of football he played; high school, college and pro and he's the only player in NFL history to lead the league in yards from scrimmage for four consecutive seasons.

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

He earned five Pro Bowl selections and helped the Bills secure four straight Super Bowl appearances.

The former Bills running back is both a Pro Football and College Football Hall of Fame inductee.
