Thomas last played in the NFL in 2017. He has since lost 50 pounds and taken his talents to the analyst world. Thomas has become an integral member of the NFL Network’s coverage.
On Sunday, NFL Network put Thomas in the broadcast booth for the Browns-Giants preseason game. He went viral for a pretty hilarious reason. During the broadcast, Thomas admitted how hot he was, lifting up his arms to show some pretty serious armpit sweat stains in the process.
Take a look.

So what did fans think of Joe Thomas’ commentary? Reviews are mixed.
“Watching NFL Network coverage of the Browns preseason game. Joe Thomas in the booth is priceless,” one fan said.
Others didn’t enjoy the former Browns offensive lineman nearly as much.
“Joe Thomas just said Baker Mayfield’s arm is similar to Patrick Mahomes. Local broadcasts are occasionally painful,” another wrote. “… And now Joe Thomas said that the Browns have two of the top five running backs in the NFL. Kareem Hunt is good, but come on.”
For the most part, it seems like fans enjoyed Thomas’ analysis on Sunday. Some believe he could end up being a much bigger part of the NFL Network’s live coverage this season.
Joe Thomas is excellent as an analyst. Also, someone get Joe Thomas another shirt at halftime 😂

Joe Thomas is significantly better than almost all the analysts working on Sundays for the major networks. Somebody should hire him now.
