Thomas’s mother Katrina Smith is set to be released on Nov.10 after spending more than 15 years in prison. Smith was one of 46 nonviolent drug offenders who had their sentences commuted by President Barack Obama in July. Thomas was 12 years old when his mother was sent to prison. 

Smith and Thomas’s grandmother, Minnie Pearl Thomas, were arrested and charged in March 1999 with distributing crack cocaine.

The wide receiver said that he hopes his mother will be in attendance for the Broncos game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 15. 

Thomas, who is in his sixth NFL season, has 48 catches for 527 yards and a touchdown so far this season. 

The Broncos (6–0) play the Green Bay Packers (6–0) on Sunday night.
