The Raiders will be represented by their three star players of the 2022 season when the re-imagined Pro Bowl once again takes place at Allegiant Stadium on Feb. 5, 2023. WR Davante Adams has been named to his sixth Pro Bowl, whereas RB Josh Jacobs and DE Maxx Crosby have both been named to their second. Notably, Adams’ selection this time around is his first on the AFC side as he spent the first eight years of his career with the Green Bay Packers in the NFC.

The Raiders’ three selections trailed only the Kansas City Chiefs’ seven among AFC West teams, with the Chargers and Broncos receiving two and one selections, respectively.

Crosby will be back at the Pro Bowl representing the Raiders on their home field for the second year in a row. In the 2022 Pro Bowl, Crosby was named Defensive MVP for his performance.

Jacobs’ first Pro Bowl selection came in 2020 after a 1,300 scrimmage yard, 12 touchdown season.

Jacobs’ second selection to the Pro Bowl is yet another accolade earned for the fourth-year running back, who has quietly built an impressive resume early in his career. Jacobs finished second in Offensive Rookie of the Year voting in 2019, has been selected to the Pro Bowl two out of four seasons, and is in line to capture the prestigious title of league scrimmage yards leader in 2022. With his statistical prowess on the season, Jacobs is a strong candidate to be named as either a first or second-team AP All-Pro. In short, Jacobs has checked nearly every individual box as a pro, putting on the finishing touches in 2022 as he potentially enters unrestricted free agency in the spring.
