The Cleveland Browns would like to congratulate offensive tackle Joe Thomas for being selected to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s upcoming NFL preview.

For those still looking among all of the tiny football players, click the play button and you’ll see clearly that Thomas is the dude sitting on Tom Brady’s right thigh. He’s nicely tucked behind the Super Bowl champ’s throwing hand.
This is a brilliant cover showcasing Brady as the face of the league entering 2017. But at least Thomas, a 10-time Pro-Bowler, was chosen as the featured Browns player to grace this year’s Sports Illustrated cover.
Anyway, we congratulate Thomas — one of the best Twitter follows out there as well — for making it through 160 straight games since being drafted by the Browns third overall in 2007.
