The legend Joe Thomas is back.
His energy and love of all things Cleveland Browns is infectious in the booth.
Thomas made big news last preseason because he worked so hard that he broke a sweat reminiscent of his playing days.

Thomas is joined by Chris Rose.
Rose is a native Ohioan so this is a coming home party for him.
He was part of the NFL Network team in Cleveland to cover the NFL Draft, but this is his first stint as a Browns play-by-play announcer.
Sideline reporting will be handled by Aditi Kinkahabwala.
She spent the last 10 years with NFL Network, and the majority of her coverage was with the AFC North teams.
Kinkhabwala announced her departure from NFL Network last month and has since been doing freelance work on various Cleveland Browns media outlets.
After 10 years at @nflnetwork, it’s time for some new challenges. I’ve had a decade of great adventure, wonderful friendships and the opportunity to share all sorts of stories. Now, I’m on to some other dream-chasing. Stay tuned! pic.twitter.com/UmVNk5WbyM

Rose is thrilled about the opportunity to work with Thomas and Kinkhabwala.
“Now, I get a chance to live out a dream and call Browns preseason games with Joe and Aditi. I can’t wait to bring such a passionate fan base all of the stories that will make the 2022 football journey so exciting. If you’re a kid in Cleveland right now, dream big, it might just come true.”
