There were two bits of positive news that came out today, both involving the Cleveland Browns' offensive line. Alex Mack was named to the Pro Bowl, and Joe Thomas was named an All-Pro for the two consecutive season. As reported in the official team site, Mack was jumping for joy at the news:

"I got an email actually. I jumped up and down and ran around the room a couple times," Mack told the team's Web site. "I texted just about everyone that I knew. I called [my parents] this morning. They were really excited. They were fired up and I know my mom's going to try to get a plane ticket out."

Mack joins the team's other Pro Bowler, left tackle Joe Thomas. Mack was a late addition because of Nick Mangold's injury in the AFC Championship, and because the Steelers advanced to the Super Bowl and are ineligible to play in the Pro Bowl.

Thomas also earned first-team AP All-Pro honors for the second straight year, and the third time in his career. He was the leading vote-getter for offensive tackles in the AFC, with one more vote than Miami's Jake Long. The other Browns who received All-Pro votes were FB Lawrence Vickers, C Alex Mack, and CB Joe Haden.
