Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas has been named to his sixth straight Pro Bowl, according to Mary Kay Cabot.

Thomas has now made the AFC's Pro Bowl roster in each of his first six seasons in the league. Cabot notes that only 15 players have accomplished that feat, and that 13 of them are enshrined in Canton, Ohio, in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Thomas has given up just three sacks all season and has not missed a game for Cleveland in his entire career.

Browns return specialist Joshua Cribbs has been named a first alternate as a kick returner and special teams player. Through Cleveland's first 15 games, Cribbs has returned 37 punts for 450 yards, and 41 kickoffs for 1,136 yards. Cribbs has not returned a punt or kickoff for a touchdown this year.

Entire rosters for both the AFC and NFC will be announced on Wednesday night. Be sure to check back at SB Nation for both rosters and for analysis of each conference's all-star roster.
