BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Cleveland Browns rookie left tackle Joe Thomas was added Tuesday to the AFC Pro Bowl roster, replacing Jason Peters of the Buffalo Bills.
Peters missed the Bills' final two games with a groin injury.
Thomas, the third overall selection in last year's draft, started all 16 games for the Browns and was part of an offensive line that allowed only 19 sacks, the third-fewest in franchise history.
Other Pro Bowlers for the Browns include receiver Braylon Edwards and kick returner Joshua Cribbs. Three others - guard Eric Steinbach, quarterback Derek Anderson and tight end Kellen Winslow - remain first alternates.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pound Thomas is the first Browns' offensive lineman to make the Pro Bowl since Cody Risien following the 1987 season.
The Browns improved from 4-12 in 2006 to 10-6 last season, just missing the playoffs.
