The Browns have ensured the security of Colt McCoy’s blind side by signing left tackle Joe Thomas to an 8 year contract extension worth $84 million with $44 million gauranteed. Finally a regime that puts an emphasis on the offensive line and protecting the quarterback. Barring injury Thomas is a lock for the Pro Bowl until he decides to hang it up. Maybe there’s reason to believe this regime is the one to turn the Browns around after all.
