Long snapper Ryan Pontbriand (it’s not going to be often that I mention his name) has been named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster as a “need player,” one player selected from any position to fulfill a need. He is the kind of player that is doing his job right if you never hear his name, so it is refreshing to hear he has been selected. Browns fans know he deserves it.
Pontbriand joins Braylon Edwards, Joshua Cribbs, and Joe Thomas as Brownies headed to the Pro Bowl. I’m actually going to tune in this year, wearing my Edwards jersey with pride.
