KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The late Hall of Fame linebacker Derrick Thomas will be the 10th player in Kansas City Chiefs history to have his number retired.

The Chiefs will retire No. 58 on Sunday during halftime of their game with the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead Stadium. Fans are being invited to wear their No. 58 jerseys to the game.

Thomas had completed his 11th NFL season when he died in February 2000 following a crash a month earlier. The nine-time Pro Bowl selection had a franchise-record 126.5 career sacks, including an NFL-record seven sacks in one game.

Thomas was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August. Representatives of the Hall will make a special presentation to the Thomas family during Sunday's halftime event.
