Browns sign OL Joe Thomas to contract extension

By Nate Ulrich Published: August 22, 2011

The Browns have signed offensive lineman Joe Thomas to a contract extension, agent Peter Schaffer said Monday night. It's a seven-year, $84 million deal with about $44 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported. The Browns have yet to make an announcement.

Thomas, 26, has established a reputation as one of the best left tackles in the NFL and has made the Pro Bowl in four consecutive seasons since the Browns drafted him third overall in 2007. General Manager Tom Heckert made it well known that he planned to sign Thomas to a contract extension, but Thomas didn't think it would happen this soon.

Nevertheless, Thomas wanted to stay in Cleveland all along. And he got what he wanted.
