After speaking with Sashi Brown, the Browns' new executive vice president of football operations, and head coach Hue Jackson recently, Thomas is confident, however, that he will remain in Cleveland.
"I don't think they thought about trading me last year until Denver called," Thomas added, via Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer.
"I'm super excited about Hue," Thomas added. "We're set for a nice run."
Although Thomas raved about the duo as the best right tackle/center combination in the NFL, Schwartz is an impending free agent and Mack can opt out of his contract this offseason.
If Thomas' refreshed outlook is any indication, perhaps Jackson can sell both of them on a turnaround in Cleveland.
