CLEVELAND — The Associated Press announced its selection for All-Pro teams. Four Cleveland Browns -- all linemen -- made the cut.

Defensive end Myles Garrett and right tackle Jack Conklin were named to the AP All-Pro Team for the 2020 season on Friday.

Garrett has had an explosive season despite missing two games after contracting COVID-19. He finished sixth in the league with 12 sacks and had four forced fumbles with two fumble recoveries during the regular season.

The disruptive defensive end was named the NFL’s Defensive Player of the Month in October and was the team’s Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee.

Garrett was named to his second Pro Bowl this season in addition to making the All-Pro first team for the first time in his career.

Conklin has started 15 games for the Browns since signing as a free agent in March, helping bolster the offensive line, which was one of the team’s weakest areas at the end of last season. Conklin made the AP All-Pro team one other time, in 2016, his rookie season.

Garrett and Conklin weren’t the only Browns recognized by the Associated Press.

Left guard Joel Bitonio and right guard Wyatt Teller both earned AP All-Pro second-team honors for their performances during the 2020 season.

Bitonio has made the All-Pro second-team for three consecutive seasons, playing in every snap since the start of the 2017 season and providing the offensive line with veteran skill and leadership.

Teller has been a crucial component to the Browns' strong run game and is the highest ranked guard in the NFL by PFF with a 92.9 overall grade and a 93.6 run block grade.
