Demaryius Thomas’ death on Thursday has led to an outpouring of tributes from former teammates, teams and fans across the NFL.
On Sunday, the Denver Broncos held a moment of silence for Thomas at Empower Field ahead of their Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.
Along with the moment of silence, the team created a memorial for Thomas outside of the stadium and wore helmet decals with his No. 88.
Inside the stadium, a portrait of Thomas was placed outside the Broncos’ locker room:
Once the game began, the Broncos lined up for their first play with 10 men, leaving Thomas’ X position open before taking a delay of game. The Lions declined the penalty.
Thomas spent eight and a half seasons with the Broncos from 2010 to 2018, earning four Pro Bowl selections and a Super Bowl title during his tenure.
He was found dead at his Georgia home on Thursday at age 33.
