The Browns' Joe Thomas is many things. He's an avid outdoorsman, an all-around funny guy, a Hall of Fame tackle, and now a recruiter.

Thomas is lobbying to get Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins to come and play for the Cleveland Browns.

Cousins, who will be a free agent next month, tweeted a picture holding his son Cooper saying:

Naturally, Thomas had some wise words for the quarterback.

He went on to tout how Cleveland is the best option, noting how Cousins could become an instant hero among some of the city's most loyal fans, and even ones who have lost hope after a 0-16 season.

Cleveland leads the league with a $110 million-plus spending cap, according to the NFL. If Cousins signs with the Browns, he will be probably be the highest-paid player in league history.
