Not only are Maxx Crosby and AJ Cole heading to the NFL Pro Bowl games, but they’ve also been selected by the NFLPA to their Players’ All-Pro team.

The NFLPA released its second annual list on Wednesday morning. This is the first time both players have been named.

Starting after the 2022 season, the Players’ All-Pro team is voted on by players across the league. Players are asked to vote for the best at the same position and positions they line up against.

Maxx Crosby led the league with 23 tackles for a loss, his second year in a row leading the NFL in that category. The 26-year-old edge rusher finished the 2023 NFL season tied for fifth in the league for sacks (14.5) with a 92 defensive grade from Pro Football Focus, the fifth highest of all defensive players. Crosby led the Raiders in quarterback hits (31) and quarterback pressures (50), too.

According to the Las Vegas Raiders, AJ Cole landed in the top five of all punters in yards per punt (50.4) net yards per punt (43.7) and punts inside the opponents’ 30-yard line (34).

The 28-year-old punter set a league record when in Week 9 against the New York Giants, he averaged 63.6 yards per punt, the highest single-game punt average in NFL history with a minimum of four punts.

Fans can check out the full list of players selected for the NFLPA’s All-Pro team here.
