It’s that time of year again when the Pro Bowl rosters finally come out.

Every year at this time, the first conversation is about who got snubbed. That conversation is always linked to who got in but didn’t deserve it. 

Thankfully, that isn’t the case for the Raiders. Three Raider players were named to the Pro Bowl, and they deserve it. 

Since the Pro Bowl is in Las Vegas, all three will get to play in front of a home crowd.

Davante Adams

Davante Adams making the Pro Bowl isn’t anywhere close to surprising. This is his 6th consecutive Pro Bowl. 

What’s impressive about it is that he managed to change teams and not miss a beat. 

Even if Adams skipped the last three games, he would still have a Pro Bowl-worthy stat line. 

  • 86 Catches
  • 1,275 yards
  • 12 TDs

Maxx Crosby

Maxx Crosby was criminally underrated in his first two seasons. With his second straight Pro Bowl selection, he is finally getting the recognition he deserves. 

He leads all defensive linemen in tackles for loss (19) and forced fumbles (3). He is also third in sacks with a career-high 11.5.

Josh Jacobs

Josh Jacobs is in a contract year, so the pressure is on him to perform and deliver. 

He is back in the Pro Bowl for the second time after making it in 2020 but missing it in 2021.

He currently leads the NFL in both rushing and scrimmage yards. 

  • 291 Attempts
  • 1,495 Rushing Yards
  • 11 TDs
  • 5.1 Yards per Attempt
