Cleveland Browns All-Pro left tackle Joe Thomas faces an uncertain future.

On one hand, he can go through the recovery process for his torn left triceps and return to the Browns in 2018, knowing that the team has already pledged to make him the league's highest paid offensive lineman.

Or, he can call it a career after 11 stellar seasons, knowing that a trip to Canton will be in his future as a Pro Football Hall of Famer.

Will Thomas opt to come back, despite the fact that the Browns still have a long way to go to get the 10-time Pro Bowler to his first playoff game?

'The Voice of the Browns,' Jim Donovan, laid out the decision that Thomas faces during "Jimmy's Take" on Thursday's Donovan Live.
