Myles Garrett, Joel Bitonio named first team All-Pro, Wyatt Teller second team


CLEVELAND, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – The Browns landed three players on the Associated Press All-Pro Team for the 2021 NFL season Friday.

Left guard Joel Bitonio and defensive Myles Garrett were selected to the first team and right guard Wyatt Teller the second team.

It marks the second straight selection for Garrett and first for Bitonio.

Teller was named to the second team last season as well.

Garrett set the Browns franchise record for sacks in a single season with 16 and was named to the Pro Bowl for a third time. He started all 17 games, had 33 QB hits, 17 tackles for loss, batted three passes and scored his first NFL touchdown this season.

Bitonio, a four-time Pro Bowler, finished ahead of the Colts’ Quentin Nelson in voting after finishing behind him a year ago. He started all 17 games at left guard this season and continues to establish himself as a premier player at his position.

Teller also started all 17 games in 2021 and has become one of the best pull guards in the league under offensive line coach Bill Callahan.

Teller was four-year, $56.8 million contract extension through 2025 and Bitonio was signed to a 3 year, $48 million extension, also through the 2025 season.
