While close friend and teammate Thurman Thomas tweeted simply "I LOVE JIM KELLY", current and former Buffalo Bills joined in to wish the Hall of Fame quarterback well as he announced he was diagnosed with cancer on Monday. Kelly made the announcement from his golf tournament, allowing many of his out-of-town friends to see the man face to face.
Below, you'll see the supportive and encouraging tweets from current and former Bills sent out in support of Kelly yesterday. If you saw a particularly great tweet or comment you would like to share, make sure to add it to the comments section.
