Joe Thomas to visit ESPN as guest analyst

Browns left tackle Joe Thomas is trying his hand at television for a few days.

Thomas and former Giants star receiver Victor Cruz will visit ESPN this week as guest NFL analysts, making their rounds around the network's Bristol, Conn., campus with the league's postseason drawing to a close.

Thomas, a 10-time Pro Bowler who suffered a season-ending triceps injury in October, will appear on NFL Live (1:30 p.m. ET), editions of SportsCenter and First Take on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thomas, who played 10,363 consecutive snaps before that injury against the Titans in Week 7, was honored for that milestone at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards last week. Off the field, the multi-talented and personable Thomas has cultivated an impressive Twitter following​ over the past two years. Thomas also hosts the First Podcast in NFL History and is a co-host with former Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins on the ThomaHawk Show.  

Thomas, a future Hall of Famer, remains undecided whether he'll return for his 12th season in 2018.

Per ESPN, here's Thomas' schedule for the next two days:

Tuesday, Jan. 23:
