Owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam said Thomas' playing streak — the number 10,363 — will be added to the team's ring of honor at FirstEnergy Stadium this season.
"There is a possibility," he said. "I have said before that at some point in time I would like to do differently because I think it is important to coach the team. Now that I truly understand the situation and have been through it and have looked at it, I did not want to put that pressure on somebody else early in this situation. Now knowing, now seeing and now truly believing in that the team is going to take a step forward, everything is on the table."
