The Pro Football Writers of America have recognized three Raiders players for their performance during the 2021 season.
Raiders punter A.J. Cole was named to the PFWA All-NFL team. Defensive end Maxx Crosby earned All-AFC honors, and safety Tre’von Moehrig was named to the All-Rookie team.
Cole led the NFL with a 50-yard average on 64 punts. That included a long punt of 71 yards.
Crosby led the NFL with 100 quarterback pressures, according to Pro Football Focus. It was the most pressures by any player in a single season since PFF began tracking that stat. Crosby also had eight sacks.
Moehrig, a second-round pick in 2021 out of TCU, was the 23rd- ranked safety in 2021, according to PFF, while starting every game.
