CLEVELAND — For the second-straight year, Cleveland Browns guard Joel Bitonio has been voted onto the Associated Press’ All-Pro second team.

Bitonio is the only player on the Browns to have made it on the rosters this year.

The rosters are voted on by a panel of 50 media members across the country. He’s joined on the offensive line by Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari, Chiefs right tackle Mitchell Schwartz, Patriots left guard Joe Thuney, Ravens right guard Marshal Yanda and Raiders center Rodney Hudson.

Bitonio has appeared on the field for every snap since 2017. He landed on the NFL All-Rookie Team in 2014 and was voted into and played in the Pro Bowl in 2018.

This year, Bitonio is also a first alternate for the Pro Bowl. He will join teammates Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry, who were voted into the Pro Bowl, as well as Joe Schobert, Denzel Ward and Odell Beckham Jr. who, like Bitonio, were named alternates.
