It's been a busy offseason for the Cleveland Browns. Between the splashy addition of Deshaun Watson, the ongoing Baker Mayfield drama and a draft class full of nine new faces, it's been eventful to say the least.

Now the Browns head into OTAs and the beginning of summer workouts as the rookie class begins adjusting to life in the NFL. Cleveland recently released a video series titled 'Building the Browns' that follows the new rookie class.

Isaiah Thomas, the seventh-round selection from Oklahoma, joked about one surprising element of this adjustment period. Check out the video below.

Thomas was not the only member of the Oklahoma Sooners to hear his name called by the Browns. In fact, Cleveland drafted three OU products, including Thomas, defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey and wide receiver Michael Woods II.

Thomas playfully discussed his previous disdain for the color orange, but described the Browns' colors and his new gear as "fire." "Seeing that orange and putting it on, I really liked it."

There were two separate occasions where Thomas discussed adjusting to his new colors in the video, proof it may take him some time. After all, Oklahoma players learn to hate the color orange worn by their bitter rival Texas Longhorns.

At least the Texas orange and Browns orange are slightly different hues. Plus, Thomas doesn't have too much to be bitter about. His Sooners went a perfect 4-0 in the annual Red River Showdown from 2018-on.

All jokes aside, the Browns' rookie class and other offseason improvements show a team ready to compete for a deep playoff run. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL Odds show Cleveland at +2000 (T-10th) to win Super Bowl 57.
