ORCHARD PARK, NY (WKBW) - For the third time in Buffalo Bills franchise history, a jersey will be retired.
Thurman Thomas, the Hall of Fame running back and longtime Bills great will officially have his No. 34 jersey retired by the very team that drafted him. Thomas joins quarterback Jim Kelly (No. 12) and defensive end Bruce Smith (No. 78).
The Bills will officially retire his jersey on October 29, the night that the Bills host the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. That game will be the first time the Bills have hosted a Monday Night Football game since 2008, and will be going for their first MNF home victory since 1994 -- when Thomas was still a key member of the team.
