CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The City of Cleveland will recognize July 3 as Joe Thomas day.
If you are wondering why July 3, he wore No. 73.
The Akron RubberDucks have named a super bratwurst after Thomas.
The future Pro Football Hall of Famer also took out a full page ad in The Plain Dealer to thank the fans.
Thomas played in 10 Pro Bowls and was a six-time all pro.
