Anyone following Joe Thomas on Twitter recently has seen his many, many overtures to possible free agent quarterbacks Kirk Cousins and Drew Brees. Based on recent history, no QB in their right mind is going to favor the Browns, so Thomas is playing the roles of economist, cheerleader, and even weatherman to get Cleveland a franchise play-caller.
Here’s his most recent overture, which includes a weather forecast showing that maybe Cleveland is actually pretty nice in February:

Will it work? Probably not. Cleveland has a way of shortening its QB’s careers drastically, but it’s nice to see Thomas act as the elderly statesman and pull out all these tricks to court a quarterback. Maybe it will work, but I really wouldn’t bet on it. Even with Thomas being as convincing as he is.
