Derrick Thomas Is The Greatest Kansas City Chief To Wear #58

New, comments

There have been seven Kansas City Chiefs players who have worn the number 58. No offense to Tom Baugh, Dave Martin, Steve Potter, Andrew Rice, Jack Rudnay or Arland Thompson, but Derrick Thomas is the greatest Kansas City Chiefs player to ever wear that number. 

It's been just over 11 years and two weeks since DT passed away. We were just talking about him on the anniversary of his death in fact. A few times a year, we talk about Derrick Thomas and frankly it doesn't get old. He was simply put one of the best players to ever play in the National Football League. 

No poll for this one AP readers. This honor goes straight to Derrick Thomas. RIP DT.
