Denver Broncos Opens Talks with Cleveland Browns – on Joe Thomas Trade

Denver is believed to have had formal discussions with Cleveland in a possilbe Trade for Joe Thomas.

The Denver Broncos and John Elway are hell bent on improving their offensive line for next season and beyond and have targeted 10× Pro Bowl Offensive tackle Joe Thomas.

Thomas, 32, is arugbably the best offensive tackle in the game today and before the start of the 2011 season Joe Thomas and the Cleveland Browns agreed to a record setting seven-year $84 million extension with $44 million guaranteed, seeing Thomas ties to the franchise until the end of the 2018-19 season.

Thomas will earn a base salary of $8,300,000 next season, a salary the Broncos are capable of paying under their current cap space.

The Broncos had one of the worse offensive line in the NFL this season and are desperately in need of a veteran leader and they have identifield Thomas as their No.1 target going forward.

In 10 years in the NFL, Thomas has been selected to 10 Pro Bowls. He’s been named first team All-Pro 7 times. Despite all that greatness, he’s only played in one playoff game his entire career, and that was as a rookie back in 2007.

The Broncos need to trade for Joe Thomas to improve a line that currently has two young quarterbacks that need time to develop. Also, if the Broncos do decided to bring in Tony Romo, the injury prone quarterback who is a big hit from retirement will benefit from a Joe Thomas in front of him.
