Second year receiver Josh Gordon heads the group of five Browns players named to the NFL Pro Bowl on Friday night.
Gordon, who has 1,564 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns in 13 games, made the squad for the first time. He missed the first two games due to a suspension.
Cornerback Joe Haden was named for the first time as well. In his fourth season, Haden was voted in as he routinely took on the best receiver of the opponent. He has continued to play through a hip injury he suffered against the Chicago Bears. Haden has 4 interceptions this season, one of which he took to the end zone for a touchdown.
Tight end Jordan Cameron got the nod for the first time. He was leading the team in receptions until he missed last week’s contest with a concussion.
Center Alex Mack earned his second trip, the first being in 2010.
Joe Thomas is now in elite company as he made the team for the 7th straight time. He is one of only 10 players who made the Pro Bowl in each of his first 7 years in the league. Browns legend Jim Brown leads that group, all of which have been voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Thomas has played every offensive snap of every game since he came into the league.
T.J. Ward was named as an alternate.
