After 11 amazing seasons with the Cleveland Browns, left tackle Joe Thomas has officially announced his retirement. The Browns selected Thomas third overall in 2007 NFL Draft and he has been a bright spot in Cleveland ever since.
Up until his injury last season, the future Hall of Famer had played in every single snap in 167 games. News of Thomas’ retirement has lit up the Twitter world. We wish Thomas the best in wherever life leads him next.

HATE to see @joethomas73 retire with all the pieces coming to Cleveland this year, but what a hell of a career. So much respect for him as a person and athlete.

Joe Thomas is one of the greatest players of this era both on and off the field, when I played pee wee football he made it feel cool to play on the offensive line, sad to see him go but can't wait to see what his next career move is pic.twitter.com/rhKHQhBbQY

Bigger waste of their talent over the length of their career:
Joe Thomas or Barry Sanders? https://t.co/DmP6M5dQuQ
