RIP Derrick Thomas (1967-2000)


Nine years ago today, Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas died of a blood clot that resulted from a car accident sixteen days earlier. That accident happened on my birthday and I always think of Derrick on my birthday.

RIP DT. I love that I can call you a Hall of Famer now.
