On Wednesday morning president Barack Obama commuted the prison sentences of 214 non-violent drug offenders.
Upon that list was Minnie Pearl Thomas, the grandmother of Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas.
“I just came in from weights when I found out,” Demaryius Thomas said after the Broncos’ morning training camp practice. “I had no idea. I was surprised. I was excited, too, it came this early. I heard 200-plus people get to have a second chance, and for my grandmother to be one of them, it’s a blessing.”
