Thomas confirmed he won't be taking any coaching or front office positions despite being offered a job.

To Joe Thomas, there is one glaring reason why teams haven't jumped to sign 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick — he's a distraction..

The Browns offensive tackle went on a lengthy Twitter rant about Kaepernick's situation. According to Thomas, Kaepernick isn't the caliber of a starting quarterback, and teams don't want distractions from backups.

When Twitter users began to jump down Thomas' throat, he decided to take a poll on the matter.

Kaepernick made headlines last year when he kneeled during the national anthem before NFL games in protest of racial inequality. Many lauded his actions, while some found them to be disrespectful.

Looks like Thomas fits in the latter category and won't be rallying for Kaepernick to join the Browns anytime soon.
