In the wake of the Broncos agreeing to trade Demaryius Thomas to the Texans, many teammates took to Twitter to share their thoughts and their memories of their time playing with D.T. — but beware, you may need to grab your tissues before reading through these. Thomas was the kind of teammate that everyone enjoyed being around, and these posts reflect that.
Thomas' personality was especially magnetic for young players, who found a more than capable teacher in Thomas.
A couple of Broncos legends — two who have faced the challenges that arise when they find new football homes — also gave Thomas shoutouts.
And, finally, D.T. also received some kind words from two Broncos mascots — including one who grew up to become Denver's mayor.
