Cleveland Browns News: Will Joe Thomas join Monday Night Football?
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news that you need to know, including the possibility of Joe Thomas becoming an announcer.
When Joe Thomas decided to retire from playing left tackle for the Cleveland Browns, it was expected that he was going to join a television network to become an analyst.
That job never materialized even though Thomas auditioned for two different analyst jobs. Instead, Thomas did pregame work for NFL Network.
One of the jobs that Thomas auditioned for, Monday Night Football, once again has an opening after Jason Witten decided to return to the Dallas Cowboys.

Joe Thomas doesn’t want Monday Night Football gig – Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk
"At a time when more than a few people are more than willing to openly politick for a spot in the Monday Night Football booth, one recently-retired player has made it clear that he’s not interested.Actually, former Browns left tackle Joe Thomas isn’t interested in any work as a game analyst."
After the criticism that Witten received for his work as an analyst, there is a good chance that it detracted a lot of former players from wanting to be analysts. Although Thomas would likely thrive in that role, he has good reason for wanting to stay away from the job right now.
Duke Johnson trade may make sense for the Browns
The Cleveland Browns are making headlines around the league for all of their potential moves, including the possibility of trading Duke Johnson. Matthew McFatridge believes that it may make sense for Cleveland to move on from the running back.
‘The Attalla Way’: Blue-collar, charitable culture produced leaders like Freddie Kitchens, even as economy struggled – Marla Ridenour, Akron Beacon Journal
"But above all, it expresses the discipline and character of those who hail from the small towns in northeast Alabama where the Browns’ new coach grew up, a region boasting the natural beauty of Sand Mountain, the Coosa River and Noccalula Falls and the rusting remnants of booming industry gone bust."
One of the reasons Browns fans like Freddie Kitchens so much is because he had a similar upbringing as many from Cleveland did. It is obvious that the way Kitchens grew up has made him such a good leader as a football coach.
