Demaryius Thomas is trying to get his mother to Denver so she can see him play football for the first time.
Katina Smith was released from federal prison last summer when President Barack Obama commuted her sentence on drug trafficking charges. It was part of the president's push to reduce the prison population of non-violent offenders.
Smith went to a halfway house in Georgia and was restricted from traveling until now.
He said the reunion "would mean a lot. This would be her first game. I'll be excited. She'll be excited."
Smith and her mother were arrested when Thomas was 11 years old. Her mother, Minnie Pearl, remains in prison.
According to ESPN, Emmanuel Sanders - whose locker is next to Thomas' - the whole team knows Thomas is looking forward to Smith being at the game.
