A 10-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Thomas played 11 seasons with the Cleveland Browns after being selected with the third overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. During his first 10 seasons with the Browns, Thomas played in every game and never missed a snap, having earned the starting left tackle job as a rookie. In his final season, Thomas' streak of consecutive snaps played ended at 10,363, which is the longest streak recorded since snaps played were counted. Thomas announced his retirement following the 2017 NFL season. During the 2018 season, the Browns added the number 10,363 to the Ring of Honor, commemorating Thomas' milestone consecutive snaps played streak.

A Wisconsin native, Thomas played four seasons at the University of Wisconsin from 2003-06. The former Badger earned first-team All-American honors in 2006 and won the Outland Trophy as college football's top interior lineman.
