Joe Thomas has become the iron man of the NFL.
The former Wisconsin offensive lineman has never missed time during his 11-year NFL career. Thomas hasn’t missed a start, he hasn’t missed a game and he hasn’t missed a snap.
Sunday, the Browns left tackle hit a nearly unbelievable milestone. Thomas played in his 10,000th consecutive snap.
Never missed a game.
Never missed a snap.

Thomas has been a Pro Bowler in each of his first 10 NFL seasons, and he has a long list of achievements and accolades that dates back to his Wisconsin days. Sunday’s milestone is certainly one of the most impressive.
