Thurman, Kelly part of Declaration of Independence reading on Fox

By Alan Pergament

Retired Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas once again will be a dual threat on Super Bowl Sunday.

Thomas, who was known for getting yards rushing as well as by catching passes in his Hall of Fame career, will first be on CBS' "Sunday Morning" eating chicken wings with Mo Rocca.

Several hours later, Thomas will join fellow Bills Hall of Famer Jim Kelly on the Fox Super Bowl pregame show right before the player introductions at around 6:20 p.m. Sunday. The Bills Hall of Fame teammates will be among more than 20 present and former National Football League players and owners reading excerpts from the Declaration of Independence.

Tim Clark, the film commissioner of the Buffalo Niagara Film Office, said his office coordinated the shoot that was filmed by a Fox crew from Southern California in Buffalo City Hall's Council Chambers on Jan.2 when there was a raging snowstorm.

The list of readers includes former Bill London Fletcher and members of the Boston Police Department and the Houston Fire Company.
