Joe Thomas Enjoyed Watching Goodell Award Pats SB Trophy


When NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell decided to suspend Tom Brady for four games due to his alleged role in deflategate, many were rooting for the New England Patriots to win Super Bowl LI just so they could witness Goodell handing over the Vince Lombari trophy to the franchise that despises him.

Well, those individuals got their wish, including Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas.

“I especially enjoyed how over-eager Roger was to smile at all the Patriots and give them a big handshake, but then as soon as he gave them the trophy he scurried off the stage like a rat,” Thomas said. “It was awesome.”

As Thomas gets older, he stated how he’s starting to care less what people think about him speaking his mind. So, we should be expecting more juicy quotes from Thomas as time goes on.
