An official cause of death has not been announced at this time.
“I just emailed Demaryius Thomas position coach while he was at West Laurens High School – Jeff Clayton,” FOX 5 Sports Atlanta Falcons producer Miles Garrett said in a tweet. “He tells me that the rumors are true. The former Georgia Tech and Broncos receiver has passed away at the age of 33.”
Washington Post’s Washington Football Team writer Nicki Jhabvala is reporting that Thomas was found in his residence in Roswell, Georgia. The police believe that he died from a medical issue, Jhabvala is reporting.
Thomas — who would have been 34 on Christmas Day — was a first-round draft pick by the Denver Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft. Earlier this year, he announced his retirement from the NFL.
He was a four-time Pro Bowler in his career. In addition, he was a part of a Super Bowl-winning team with the Broncos.
In his career, he played for the Broncos, Houston Texans, and the New York Jets. He last played in the NFL during the 2019 season with the Jets.
He played in 11 games, including 10 starts with the Jets. Thomas had 36 receptions for 433 yards and a touchdown.
The former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets receiver appeared in 143 games, including 128 starts. He had 724 receptions for 9.763 receptions and 63 touchdowns.
