Joe Thomas retired after the 2017 season. Three offseasons later, the Browns still are trying to replace him.

The connections to Trent Williams and Jason Peters are obvious, and Mary Kay Cabot of reports the team will explore both as they cast “a wide net in their search” for a left tackle.

Peters, 38, will become a free agent and the Eagles announced Thursday the sides have “mutually agreed” to let him hit the market. Browns General Manager Andrew Berry spent last season in Philadelphia as assistant G.M. to Howie Roseman.

Williams, 31, had Bill Callahan as his position coach in Washington for four seasons (not counting 2019 when Williams didn’t play). Callahan now coaches in Cleveland.

The Browns, with former General Manager John Dorsey, tried to trade for Williams at the October deadline.

Washington now has given Williams permission to seek a trade.

  1. I would offer a 1st for Trent along with an extension only if he committed to eating meat again.

  2. Peters is an HOFer and one of the greatest Eagles ever…but Father Time is undefeated. Prepare for a lot of false starts and him taking himself out of games.

    He might have a few great seasons left at guard, however.

  3. Williams is the better long term option. If you get more than a year out of Peters at his age i will be surprised.

    The Bengals should try to sign Peters while continuing to draft linemen. Perfect situation for him.

  4. Only the Browns would make a move THIS FREAKING STUPID & not only committ 20+ million to the position but they also would have to give up a 2nd round pick for a tackle as well when THE DRAFT IS very deeeep & loaded with quality high OT prospects. But NO the Browns being the Browns are going to try and sign an injury riddled 33yr old or a guy pushing 40 without mufl

  5. Washington totally bungled this. All the talk out of CLE last season was that John Dorsey was offering up a great package which was likely a 1st rounder (if not more assets). Washington will be lucky to get a 3rd now.
