GLENDALE, Ariz. (KDVR) — Former teammates of Demaryius Thomas will honor him with the number 88 on their helmets in the Monday night matchup between the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams.
Longtime Broncos favorite and now L.A. Ram, Von Miller posted a picture of his helmet before the game.

Hopkins tweeted, “Love you forever brother!! This one hurt Deep 🙏🏻🙏🏻,” on Dec. 10 after it was reported Thomas died.
