The 2019 Raiders’ rookie class is a tight-knit group and that was on display on Monday as defensive end Maxx Crosby took to Twitter to support the NFL Man of the Year nomination of fullback Alec Ingold.
Rocking an Oakland Raiders’ hoodie, Crosby pushed hard for his teammate to win the honor. The NFL Man of the Year award is given to a player who is known for his outstanding efforts off the field. It is the most prestigious off-field award the league gives and is set to be announced on Feb. 6.
Ingold was clearly moved by Crosby’s gesture.
Crosby was a fourth-round draft pick in 2019, while Ingold was was signed as an undrafted rookie that same year. This class is considered the foundation of the future in Las Vegas and the brotherhood of the class is undeniable.
