Cleveland Browns Roster Breakdown: Joel Bitonio

Joel Bitonio looks to be the anchor on a very good Browns offensive line this season.

This is the fourth installment of a series of articles covering each player on the Cleveland Browns roster. There will be a new player released every day from now until the Browns preseason begins. If you enjoy (tolerate) this article, I encourage you to check back each day to read each one. I keep these articles so short, even Brandon Weeden couldn’t get lost in one.

#75- Joel Bitonio– G- Nevada

I call him “Billy” Joel Bitonio because he holds blocks for Baker for “The Longest Time”. When you look at pass protection in the NFL, it comes down to “A Matter of Trust”. Joel really blocks like an “Angry Young Man” and refuses to allow opposing defenses to get any “Pressure” on his quarterback. 

The Browns’ Pro Bowl guard has been a consistent mainstay for the offensive line the last couple of seasons. Bitonio was starting to get a reputation of being injury prone after ending his 2015 and ’16 seasons on the IR. However, he hasn’t missed a start over the last 2 years. Joel hasn’t been called for a holding call in 3 years, but he did get busted with two false starts last season (what a bum).

As previously mentioned, Bitonio is sort of the anchor to this line. He had the privilege of learning under Joe Thomas his first 4 years and was schooled in the art of not stretching by Bob Wylie. The offensive line was the best in the NFL at keeping their QB upright during the second half of last season, and Mr. Bitonio was a big reason why.

If you liked these Billy Joel puns, be sure to check out my other Browns Breakdowns, like yesterdays on DJ Montgomery.

Just think if the browns would have taken Josh Allen

Who have they beat?

It’s bad play calling it’s bad execution. Nick it’s 3 years of baker still not settling in and playing his game

After this year if baker doesn’t prove himself. Would you rather see the browns let him go and find a new QB in the draft?

Nick, you’re the only browns fan that I love❤️ next game will be PSU vs OSU❤️
