The other great option would be Joe Thomas. If you’re familiar with Josh Cribbs and Tim Couch’s post-Browns career, you’re probably familiar with Thomas’, who since retirement has become a very vocal personality among the pro football scene. That seems to be a big common denominator with each suggestion; guys who are used to being in front of a camera.
Thomas’ tenure with the Browns saw him become arguably the greatest left tackle in not just franchise history but in NFL history. He only had one winning season during his time with Cleveland and never had a competent offense he could really brag about but his stellar play and loyalty made him a Cleveland legend.
Especially during a time period where fans didn’t have many legends to cherish. During his playing days, he made the NFL All-Pro team eight times, six of which were on the first First-Teams, and two being on the Second-Team, as well as 10 Pro Bowls, the NFL All-Decade team, a selection to the Cleveland Browns Ring of Honor and an eventual gold jacket waiting for him in Canton.
Since retirement he’s served as host with former Browns player Andrew Hawkins with The Thom & Hawk Football Show podcast and has been a fixture on various NFL shows, most notably working with the NFL Network.
Any of these three men would do a great job, but considering Doug Dieken was a Pro Bowl left tackle during his playing days with the team, Thomas seems like the obvious pick.
