It isn’t often that a former offensive lineman becomes a hot broadcasting commodity after his retirement. That was the case though with former Cleveland Brown tackle Joe Thomas. After auditioning for Fox and ESPN, Thomas has signed a contract with the NFL Network.
Thomas will be a part of the network’s studio team. His primary role will be as an analyst for Thursday Night Football, but he will also be a part of the NFL Network’s coverage of Super Bowl LIV, the Scouting Combine, and the NFL Draft.
“Throughout my playing career, I quickly realized there are few events which can rival the excitement and action of primetime NFL games, and having the chance to be a part of that atmosphere each week is something I greatly look forward to,” Thomas said in a press release.
Joe Thomas already has some broadcasting and hosting reps under his belt. He has been hosting a podcast called The ThomaHawk Show with former Browns teammate and ESPN NFL analyst Andrew Hawkins for Uninterrupted.
