DENVER (KKTV) - Broncos great Demaryius Thomas is calling it a career.

“I’m Demaryius Thomas, and I’ve finally come to a decision to hang it up. I’m going to retire, and I’m going to retire a Denver Bronco,” the wide receiver announced in a tweet Monday morning.

Thomas, 33, was a first-round pick for the Broncos in 2010 and was part of the 2013 and 2015 teams that went to the Super Bowl (the latter team cliniching the title).

After eight and a half years in the orange and blue, he was traded to the Houston Texans.

“You could always count on D.T. He belongs among the greatest players in Broncos history for what he’s meant to this organization on the field and out in the community,” President of Football Operations John Elway said.
