CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns guard Joel Bitonio has been named to the 2020 AFC Pro Bowl roster, joining teammates Nick Chubb and Jarvis Landry.

Bitonio was previously named a first alternate for the 2020 Pro Bowl, but after Steelers guard David DeCastro was deemed unable to participate due to injury, Bitonio has moved up.

“I am honored and humbled to be named to the Pro Bowl,” Bitonio said. “To wear our orange helmet and represent Cleveland and our great fans again is something that I take a lot of pride in. It always takes a team effort when you get this type of recognition so it’s really good to be able to share this with some of my teammates. Last year, I got to experience the Pro Bowl with Jarvis and this year, it’s going to be really cool to be blocking for Nick in the game.”

Bitonio was also recently named to the Associated Press’ All-Pro second team.

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.

The 2020 Pro Bowl, which kicks off at 3 p.m., will take place on Sunday, Jan. 26, and will be televised live from Camping World Stadium in Orlando on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC and Disney XD.
