Updated at 6:40 p.m. with results for running back Peyton Hillis
The Browns have two players who are locks to become all-stars, at least in the eyes of the fans. Left guard Eric Steinbach (329,714 votes) and kick returner Josh Cribbs (186,828 votes) finished first at their respective positions in fan voting for the AFC's Pro Bowl roster, the NFL announced Wednesday.
Fan balloting, which ended Monday, accounts for one-third of the final vote. The coaches and players also vote Wednesday and Thursday. The official Pro Bowl selections will be announced at 7 p.m. Dec. 28 on NFL Network.
Steinbach, an eight-year veteran, has never been selected to a Pro Bowl before. Cribbs, who's in his sixth season, is a candidate for his third Pro Bowl, though he hasn't been himself this season because he has been hindered by the toes he dislocated on his right foot Nov. 14 against the New York Jets.
Browns running back Peyton Hillis also received some love from the fans. In his third season, Hillis (656,276 votes) finished third among AFC running backs. The Houston Texans' Arian Foster (710,166 votes) and the Jacksonville Jaguars' Maurice Jones-Drew (707, 913 votes) finished first and second, respectively.
