Cribbs, Thomas voted to Pro Bowl

By Marla Ridenour Published: December 29, 2009

Browns receiver/returner Joshua Cribbs was voted to the second Pro Bowl of his five-year career as the AFC's return specialist and left tackle Joe Thomas was tabbed for the third time in three years.

Thomas became the first Browns player to be voted to three consecutive Pro Bowls since defensive tackle Michael Dean Perry in 1990-92. The last Browns' offensive lineman to achieve that feat was Hall of Famer Gene Hickerson from 1966-69.

The game will be played Jan. 31 at Dolphin Stadium the weekend before the Super Bowl, moved this year from its previous home in Honolulu.

Results of the voting by fans, coaches and players, each counting one-third, were announced Tuesday night on the NFL Network.

This season, Cribbs has notched a career-high four returns for scores, three on kickoffs. His previous best was three TDs in 2007, when he made his other Pro Bowl trip.

He ranks third in the league in kickoff returns (27.8-yard average) and fourth in punt returns (12.4) and has added nine special teams tackles, fourth on the Browns' list. He's also the Browns' third-leading rusher with 334 yards (6.8 average), most out of the Wildcat formation, and has caught 20 passes for 135 yards and a TD.
