Derrick Thomas Died Eleven Years Ago Today

Eleven years ago today, NFL Hall of Famer and Kansas City Chief Derrick Thomas passed away. He had been in a car accident two weeks before on January 23rd. 

On the morning of February 8, 2000, Derrick Thomas was being transferred from his hospital bed to a wheelchair for a physical therapy session. He told his mother he wasn't feeling well and not much later, his eyes rolled back into his head. He went into cardiac arrest and died a short time later. 

He was 33-years old. 

Nine years later, Derrick was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame, a truly deserving place for one of the greatest Kansas City Chiefs of all time. Click the play button above for an amazing tribute video put together by C.E. Wendler
