NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Browns left tackle Joe Thomas is retiring from the NFL after 11 seasons. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

This is a massive blow to the Browns organization, as Thomas has been a staple at left tackle since coming into the league, playing at a Pro Bowl level. They now have a massive void to fill on their offensive line, and the top free agent Nate Solder already signed with the Giants. There's a realistic possibility that the Browns start contemplating Notre Dame's Mike McGlinchey with their No. 4 pick in the NFL Draft.
