Despite the Browns’ spectacular loss to the Ravens in Week 1 with a devastating 38-6 blowout, Tavierre Thomas managed to record a sack while filling in the cornerback position. Will we get to see more of him in the 2020 season?

I feel like Tavierre Thomas is the best tackler on our D not on the line. He’s not great in coverage, but he tackles well. It’s something. #Browns

Tavierre Thomas looks great tonight. Stepped up to the role with a weak secondary- excited to see what he can do
