We're going to share something, and if you're like us your reaction will likely be, "Wait, really?"

The Buffalo Bills will no longer have a No. 34 on the roster.

The team announced Wednesday that the number will officially be retired in a ceremony on October 29, when the Bills host the Patriots on "Monday Night Football".

The announcement was made on Thomas' 52nd birthday.

A total of nine players have donned 34, including Cookie Gilchrist, but no one else since Thurman Thomas. Former quarterback Jim Kelly (No. 12) and defensive end Bruce Smith (No. 78) are the others.

"I guess it kind of solidifies the top three guys for this organization", Thomas said.

Thomas joined the Bills' Wall of Fame in 2005 and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007. He won the NFL's MVP award in 1991 after amassing 2,038 yards from scrimmage.

Thomas played a major role on a Bills team that appeared in the Super Bowl on four consecutive occasions in the early 1990s.
