Joe Thomas to be Inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame
On August 5, 2023, Joe Thomas will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Thomas decided to stick close to home and has selected his wife Annie and their four children as his presenters in Canton. Annie was the one person who knew that Thomas was a member of the Class of 2023 and kept it a secret from him to orchestrate the perfect surprise.
During the weekend of coverage, NFL Network prepared a surprise throwback montage in black and white to showcase Joe Thomas’s skills during his 2007 NFL Combine. He has helped out at training camp in prior years with the offensive linemen and done some preseason color commentary for the Browns.
Thomas is training for the challenging 26-mile Inca Trail hike to Machu Picchu later in the spring, adding 15 minutes per week to his incline walking routine.
Thomas’s college alma mater has also honored him recently at a Wisconsin Badgers basketball game, where he was showcased on the big screen.
