The 2024 Pro Bowl games rosters were announced Wednesday and two Las Vegas Raiders made the squad.
The Raiders were led by defensive end Maxx Crosby, who made his third straight Pro Bowl team in his fifth NFL season. Crosby has been one of the most dominant defensive players in the NFL again. Las Vegas punter AJ Cole was named to his third Pro Bowl as well.

Crosby has 13.5 sacks (a career high) with 88 tackles, 21 for loss. Cole is averaging 44.8 yards in net punting and 50 yards in gross punting average.
Last year, wide receiver Davante Adams, defensive end Maxx Crosby and running back Josh Jacobs made the squad before the alternates filled the roster (the original roster is all that matters, truly).
Adams has had a good season, but it hasn’t been elite and there are several wide receivers in the AFC with better stats. Jacobs’ numbers have lagged this season after he led the NFL in rushing.
The Pro Bowl games will be played in early February in Orlando. There will be a series of skills events ending with a flag football game. The Pro Bowl is voted on by players, coaches and fans. More Las Vegas Players can be added as alternates.
