Tackle Joe Thomas is among the best in the league, so it seems a little shocking that the Cleveland Browns would be entertaining the thought of moving the former Wisconsin star, but then again, nobody really expected them to trade running back Trent Richardson either.
Is it a firesale? That we’re not sure of, but after the Browns traded Richardson and made both Greg Little and Josh Gordon available, teams have been calling about Thomas. One such team that hasn’t though are the Miami Dolphins, at least according to the Miami Herald:
In the wake of the Browns’ trade of Trent Richardson to Indianapolis, ESPN reported the team has fielded calls for receivers Greg Little and Josh Gordon and left tackle Joe Thomas.
The Dolphins don’t need any more wide receivers right now (plus Gordon is one positve drug test from being suspended for the season) but they could use some help at left tackle, especially since Thomas is among the best in the NFL.
But a Dolphins source tells me the club is not among the teams that have called the Browns about Thomas and multiple networks are reporting the Browns has so far rebuffed the teams that have called about Thomas, saying he’s not available at this time anyway.
Obviously, Thomas is a valuable commodity. He’s only 28. He is consistent. He is durable. He is a great blindside protector.
