12 years ago today, one of the greatest Chiefs of all time, Hall of Famer Derrick Thomas, passed away.
Gone way too soon at the age of 33, Thomas passed away just a couple of weeks after a serious auto accident. While being transferred from his hospital bed to a wheelchair for a therapy session, Thomas suffered a pulmonary embolism, a blood clot that traveled from his legs to his lungs.

Rest in peace DT. We miss you.
