The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know. Today’s stories look at the musical background of rookie Chad Thomas.

Sometimes when we think of football players we don’t realize they can be rather successful with other side hobbies. Maybe that’s because the amount of dedication it takes to be an NFL player seems to be all encompassing. However, some like Cleveland Browns rookie Chad Thomas can excel outside of the sport.

Thomas, the fourth-round pick out of Miami, has a love for music and has even produced tracks for Rick Ross. Thomas still plans to do what it takes to thrive in the NFL, but he looks to have a career for afterwards as well.

Going back to the time it takes to be an NFL player, some questioned if Thomas really loved football, or if it was just a hobby. In Cleveland he hopes to end any of that talk.

That story and more can be found in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
