Cleveland Browns LT Joe Thomas is well on his way to a Hall of Fame career, but has never taken to social media...that is, until Tuesday when he joined Twitter. You can see the subtle humor he brings, like when he hinted that Browns Communications Manager Dan Murphy forced him to send this one:
Shout out to the best PR man in the NFL, @DMurph_BrownsPR. (tweet sent under duress)— Joe Thomas (@joethomas73) August 9, 2016
He also managed to throw in a moderate jab at Olympian Michael Phelps for being a Ravens fan:
Congrats to @MichaelPhelps for winning his 21st Olympic gold medal. Unreal. #GOAT We can forgive you for being a Ravens fan..... this time— Joe Thomas (@joethomas73) August 10, 2016
Even though he doesn’t have the blue check mark, rest assured that this is definitely the real Joe Thomas. The team and multiple members of the media have already acknowledged it.
Leading up to this week’s game against the Packers, he unveiled the leaders in the clubhouse for the player(s) likely to score the most preseason touchdowns...

You could’ve even gotten Thomas to mail you a dollar bill, which might as well be holy.
I will personally mail one American Dollar to the first person who can tell me what PIBE and SHIG stands for pic.twitter.com/WIgEUD86Qs— Joe Thomas (@joethomas73) August 11, 2016
So go on and make sure you give Thomas a follow @joethomas73!
