Demaryius Thomas’ Grandmother to have Sentence Commuted
Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas will have another family member released from her sentence as Minnie Pearl Thomas had her sentence commuted today by President Barack Obama.
Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas got the surprise of his life last summer when it was revealed that his mother was going to have her prison sentence commuted by President Barack Obama.
One year later, Demaryius Thomas found out that he will be reunited with his grandmother in the near future.
It was announced today that the President of the United States commuted the sentences of 214 inmates. One of which included Minnie Pearl Thomas, the grandmother of the Broncos wide receiver. She was serving a life sentence for a non-violent drug crime. She was incarcerated in 2000.
It is great to see that life for Demaryius Thomas is going so well off the football field. With his mother Katina having her sentence commuted last summer, being able to be reunited with his grandmother soon will be almost like a dream relived once again.

I believe it will be great to see the Thomas family together again. Ever since Demaryius was little, I am sure that he ultimate dream was to be reunited with his family. After all, he does have “Family First” tattooed on his left and right biceps.
The wide receiver from Georgia Tech is looking to have an even better year than the 2015 season. He did well in the regular season, recording over 1,000 yards but dropped passes were the biggest issue for him. The performance in the postseason took a huge dip as his stats were unimpressive.
I have read on social media on how Demaryius Thomas’ performance is going to drop again because of his grandmother being released from jail. I believe that is blasphemous to say that. His performance has nothing to do with that. There could be a variety of reasons why he did not perform well.
All I know is that this is a piece on how exciting it must be for a Denver Broncos wide receiver to be reconnected with his family. That is what I think is the most important.
