The Cleveland Browns have announced that franchise star Joe Thomas is retiring Rodney Hudson Jersey , after 11 phenomenal seasons in the NFL:.@joethomas73 is calling it a career.See you in Canton, Joe.馃摪 禄 https://t.co/BoYpcxVcIg#ThankYou73 pic.twitter.com/gzEa8Z6tPK— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) March 14, 2018Thomas was drafted third-overall by the Browns in 2007, and he was easily worth the investment. He was named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first 10 seasons, and was also a seven-time First-team All-Pro selection.On top of that, Thomas defined the term "iron man." He didn't miss a single game until Week 7 of the 2017 season Christian Okoye Jersey , suffering a torn triceps injury that ended his season. As such, Thomas had a streak of playing in 10,363 consecutive snaps.Thomas became one of the NFL's most popular players for many reasons, especially due to his incredible sportsmanship and humbleness, despite playing on a Browns team that never took him to the playoffs. Thomas stayed loyal to the franchise throughout his career, and is a sure lock for the Hall of Fame.During the 2017 offseason Marquel Lee Jersey , Thomas told ESPN that he was suffering short-term memory loss, but understood it was a risk in playing football. It's safe to assume that is why he opted to retire, because Thomas was still playing at an elite form in 2017.The Browns were rumored to be after former New England Patriots left tackle Nate Solder in free agency, as he would have been the perfect replacement for Thomas.However, Solder inked a massive four-year contract with the New York Giants worth $62 million. The Browns own the first and fourth picks in the draft, so there is a chance they opt to find Thomas' replacement there - or in a later round.The Browns are going to look a whole lot different next season. They've acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor and star wideout Jarvis Landry in separate trades. On top of that Frank Clark Jersey , they signed offensive lineman Chris Hubbard to a five-year deal and are expected to land running back Carlos Hyde.Though Thomas' retirement does sting, the Browns at least are looking much better on paper. Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been named grand marshal for the International Boxing Hall of Fame's annual parade.

Fitzgerald, who starred in college at Pittsburgh, is a lifelong boxing fan and says he considers it a great honor.

Fitzgerald says it'll be great to share in the celebration of those being inducted.

The Parade of Champions is set for Sunday, June 10.

Boxers to be inducted that day include Vitali Klitschko, Erik Morales Mike Remmers Jersey , Winky Wright and Sid Terris. Ring announcer Johnny Addie, promoters Lorraine Chargin and Klaus-Peter Kohl, and broadcasters Steve Albert and Jim Gray also will be enshrined.
