The Class of 2021 was revealed Saturday night during the NFL Honors telecast. It was led by quarterback Peyton Manning but does not include Thomas, a finalist for the second consecutive year.
"It was an honor to be among all the worthy finalists and I wish the Class of 2021 my most sincere congratulations," Thomas said in a statement.
