After yet another consistent season in the trenches, Joel Bitonio was honored Friday as a member of the Associated Press' All-Pro second team.
This marks the second straight year Bitonio, Cleveland's longest-tenured player, has landed on the AP's second team. He's the only Browns player included on this year's rosters, which are voted upon by a panel of 50 media members across the nation.
Bitonio was one of two cogs of stability -- C JC Tretter being the other -- on a Browns offensive line that was in a state of constant flux in 2019. He was at the forefront of a dynamic rushing attack that allowed RB Nick Chubb to amass 1,494 yards, the second-most in the NFL. Bitonio did not miss a snap for the second straight season.
Bitonio is a first alternate for the Pro Bowl. He made and played in the annual all-star game last year.
