With December having arrived, it's not just the end of the year that is near, but also, the end of the decade. And what a decade it's been for the Cleveland Browns.
In order to celebrate the 2010s, we're enlisting in your help to compile the Browns' All-Decade Team. Each day, we'll release a poll on Twitter asking you to vote for a particular position, in addition to sharing the previous day's result.
On Sunday, you voted Alex Mack as the starting center of the Browns' All-Decade Team for the 2010s. Below, you can vote for the team's defensive ends.
Perhaps the most important moment of Alex Mack's career in Cleveland came when he was carted off the field with a broken fibula during an October victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. At the time, the Browns were 3-2 and appeared to be in the driver's seat of the AFC North. And while Cleveland would ultimately advance to 7-4, its season fell apart from there as the Browns finished the year with five straight losses en route to a meager 7-9 campaign.
Mack's absence from Cleveland's lineup wasn't the only reason for the Browns' struggles, but it was one of the biggest. After being selected in the first round of the 2009 draft, Mack became a mainstay of Cleveland's interior offensive line, starting in 85 straight games before suffering his aforementioned fractured fibula and 101 games overall between 2009-2015.
In that span, the California product amassed three Pro Bowl selections (2010, 2013, 2015) and one second-team All-Pro honor (2013). Following the 2015 season, he signed as a free agent with the Atlanta Falcons, with whom he has earned three more Pro Bowl selections as a member of.
Next up, the candidates for the Cleveland Browns' All-Decade Defensive Ends:
