Joe Thomas’ decade-long NFL career has come to an end. The 10-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle spent his entire career with the Cleveland Browns, recording 10,363 consecutive snaps, the longest streak since the NFL began recording snap counts in 1999. It’s as honorable as it is sad that Thomas was one of the best players in the league playing on the worst team in professional sports for 10 years.

Regardless of playing for the NFL’s punchline franchise, Joe Thomas knows a thing or two about a thing or two.

The 6’6” seven-time first-team All-Pro tackle played at a 310 lb. + weight for the entirety of his career. Ironically, keeping weight can be as difficult as losing it. Allow Thomas to elaborate:

Thomas was asked by a Twitter user if he had to eat an insane amount to keep weight.

Thomas said his current weight is 280 and he’s looking to drop down more. You and I both, brotha.
