Joel Bitonio is first-team AP All-Pro selection for Cleveland Browns

Browns running back Nick Chubb (24) celebrates with David Njoku (85) and Joel Bitonio (75) after scoring a first-half touchdown against the Chargers, Sunday, Oct. 9, 2022, in Cleveland.

Three Browns players were named to the Associated Press All-Pro team, which was released Friday afternoon.

Left guard Joel Bitonio was the team’s lone first-team selection. Running back Nick Chubb and edge rusher Myles Garrett were both second-team selections.

The teams were selected by a national panel of 50 media members. First-place votes were worth three points and second-place votes were worth one point.

Bitonio, named to the first team for the second year in a row, was far and away the leading vote-getter at his position. He received 118 total points, including 36 first-place votes, well ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs’ Joe Thuney’s 57 points and five first-place votes.

This is the fifth consecutive season Bitonio has garnered some kind of All-Pro recognition. He was a second-team pick between 2018-20 before earning first-team honors last season.

Chubb was the second-leading vote-getter at the running back position after his 1,525-yard season, earning his first All-Pro team selection. NFL rushing champion Josh Jacobs of the Las Vegas Raiders was the first-team running back.

Garrett joined the Philadelphia Eagles’ Hassan Reddick on the second team at edge rusher after having tied his franchise single-season sack record with 16 for the second season in a row. San Francisco 49ers star Nick Bosa and Dallas Cowboys’ second-year standout Micah Parsons were named to the first team.

It’s the fourth time in Garrett’s career he’s been an All-Pro selection. He was a first-team selection in 2020 and 2021, and a second-team selection in 2018.
