Sunday will mark Browns LT Joe Thomas' 100th consecutive game.
Thomas hasn't missed a game since the Browns drafted him third overall in 2007. In fact, he hasn't even missed a single one of the 6,054 snaps. Thomas, a three-time first-team All-Pro, says he's played through illness, knee sprains and torn muscles. "It's a point of pride for me to be able to play 100 straight without missing a snap," he said. "... Part of playing on the offensive line is just toughing it out."

According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are not among the teams that have called the Browns about LT Joe Thomas.
If the Browns are truly having a total firesale, every team in the league should be interested in Thomas. He's 28 years old, a six-time Pro Bowler, three-time first-team All-Pro and has graded out as a ProFootballFocus top-10 tackle in five straight seasons. The price for Thomas should be way steeper than it was for Trent Richardson. The Browns are far more likely to trade Josh Gordon, Brandon Weeden or Greg Little.

Browns LT Joe Thomas has been selected to his fifth straight Pro Bowl.
Once again, Thomas was a lone bright spot on the Browns' annually inept offense. He's never missed a start in his five-year career and remains arguably the game's best offensive lineman. Thomas signed a seven-year, $84 million extension with the Browns back in August.

Browns agreed to terms with LT Joe Thomas on a seven-year, $84 million extension with $44 million guaranteed.
The mammoth extension pays Thomas Larry Fitzgerald/Julius Peppers kind of money, busting the old high-water mark for offensive line guarantees. And he's worth every penny. Thomas has played four years in the NFL. He's made the Pro Bowl in each season, twice been a first-team All-Pro, never missed a start, and (our favorite Thomas fact): Never missed a practice. The Browns don't have many playmakers on offense, but they have the best left tackle in football protecting their QB-of-the-future hopeful, Colt McCoy.
