President Obama Helping Release Demaryius Thomas' Grandmother From Prison Early

This is definitely a good look on the part of Barack Obama, and should allow Demaryius Thomas to focus on football fully now with his entire family reunited.

On Wednesday morning, the president commuted the prison sentences of 214 non-violent drug offenders. Minnie Pearl Thomas, the grandmother of the Denver Broncos wide receiver, was one of them.

Thomas was ecstatic about the news, and was able to share it with his Broncos teammates.

“I just found out right when I came in from weights,” 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.”

Mrs. Thomas, 60, has spent the past 16 years locked up in a federal prison in Tallahassee, Fla., for running a cocaine ring in Georgia with her daughter, Katina Stuckey Smith, Demaryius' mother.
