Scheduled to hit the open market next month, free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins is set to become the subject of a massive bidding war for his services.

Browns bookend Joe Thomas wants to put that contest to bed before it starts.

Responding to a Tuesday tweet from Cousins, in which the former Redskins passer said he and his family we're "interested in hearing where the best spot is for us," Thomas made his pitch:

"I hear Cleveland is nice this time of year," wrote the All-Pro tackle, "that is, if you'd like to have a statue someday..."

Thomas went on to tout Cleveland as the perfect landing spot to become an instant hero and, incidentally, very, very rich.
