The Cleveland Browns have announced that franchise star Joe Thomas is retiring Authentic Justin Houston Jersey , after 11 phenomenal seasons in the NFL:.@joethomas73 is calling it a career.See you in Canton, Joe.馃摪 禄— 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, 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, 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 Auston Matthews 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.
The NFL made sweeping changes to kickoff rules at the league meetings earlier this month in hopes of reducing the number of injuries sustained on such plays.

While the league believes that the changes will increase the number of kickoff returns and make it “a more explosive play” while simultaneously quelling the numbers of injuries, former NFL official Jim Daopoulos doesn’t understand why the league doesn’t nix the play altogether.

鈥淚 actually can see them eliminating the kickoff completely in the next couple of years,鈥?Daopoulos said on SiriusXM NFL Radio. 鈥淚 think it鈥檚 really going to come down to that. And I don鈥檛 even know why they keep the kickoff in the game by putting these new rules in. Why don鈥檛 they just put the ball at the 25-yard line? It鈥檒l make it a whole lot simpler for everybody and really eliminate a lot of injuries.鈥?/p>

The changes made include eliminating running starts by the kickoff team, having eight members of the return team aligned within 15 yards of the restraining line, and eliminates wedge blocks on returns.

The NFL expects that the changes will reduce the numbers of injuries seen on kickoffs. But if injuries don’t decrease, there is a real chance that the play could eventually be eliminated as Daopoulos suggests.
