BILLS Bills retire Thurman Thomas' number The Buffalo Bills announced a huge honor for running back Thurman Thomas Wednesday

The Buffalo Bills announced on Wednesday that they will retire legendary running back Thurman Thomas' No. 34 on October 29, when the team hosts the New England Patriots for "Monday Night Football".

When it's your birthday AND you find out your number is getting retired.

Pro Football and College Football Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas will receive one of the ultimate honors this fall.

Yes, it has taken this long for the Bills to do something you'd assume had been done years ago. I couldn't have done this without the fans. You can be on the road in Miami, or New England, or NY and still see Buffalo Bills fans everywhere, so I think that makes it a little bit more special.

Inducted onto the Buffalo Bills Wall of Fame in 2005, Thurman Thomas will join Jim Kelly (#12) and Bruce Smith (#78) as the only players to have their numbers retired by the Bills.

Thomas spent the first 12 seasons of his 13-year career in Buffalo after the franchise selected him in the second round of the 1988 National Football League draft. The jersey retirement will be nationally televised, as the Bills vs. Patriots clash will take place on a Monday night.

Thomas will become the third player to have his number retired. "I really appreciate that and my family appreciates it".
