This week, the Cleveland Browns spent $84 million on an extension for Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas. The seven-year contract made Thomas the NFL's highest-paid lineman on offense or defense.

In our latest "Poll Friday," we want to know which Cleveland player should be next in line for a long-term extension. The Browns were inactive in free agency and have plenty of cap room remaining.

Should Cleveland re-up with center Alex Mack? The 2009 first-round draft pick has been solid and durable for the Browns. Signing Mack long term would solidify two important pieces of Cleveland's offensive line for the foreseeable future.

What about running back Peyton Hillis? He is one of Cleveland's most popular players. Hillis is coming off a stellar 2010 season in which he set career highs in yards (1,177) receptions (61) and total touchdowns (13).

Finally, should defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin get a big contract extension? The fourth-year player has developed from a former sixth-round draft pick to one of Cleveland's best players. He's started 21 games the past two seasons.

You can also vote "Other" if you believe someone else in Cleveland deserves a new contract. That could include 2010 draft picks Joe Haden, T.J. Ward or Colt McCoy, although it's rare to rip up contracts after just one season.
