2017 NFL Pro Bowl: All About Joe Thomas

NFL: Pro Bowl-AFC Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2017 NFL Pro Bowl is tonight at Camping World Stadium, Orlando, Florida, just one week away from the Super Bowl. The game will begin at 8:00 PM ET on ESPN.

This year, we are back to the AFC vs. NFC format, which I am happy about. The “fantasy draft” sounded like an interesting concept at first, but then the game was even less enjoyable than usual because I had no idea which players were on which teams.

The only representative from the Browns is LT Joe Thomas, who is in the Pro Bowl for a tenth consecutive year. Thomas is one of the captains for the AFC team, and he was also mic’d up for one of their practices this week:

There are some extra incentives for the team that wins during the Pro Bowl. However, we already know that by being an original nomination into the Pro Bowl, Thomas triggered an extra $1.5 million for his contract in 2017.

You can use this as an open thread for tonight’s game.
