CLEVELAND — A familiar face will be joining the NFL Network Thursday Night Football team.
Former tackle Joe Thomas will be a pregame and postgame analyst for the network.
"I am thrilled to join NFL Network and Thursday Night Football," Thomas said in a press release. "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 served as an analyst last during last season's Thursday Night Football broadcast of the Browns victory over the New York Jets.
He retired after the 2017 season after playing for the Browns for 11 years.
