4th Raiders player added to AFC Pro Bowl roster

A Sunday victory by a division rival got another Raiders player into the Pro Bowl.

Punter AJ Cole will take the place of Kansas City’s Tommy Townsend on the AFC roster for Sunday’s event at Allegiant Stadium.

Townsend and the Chiefs will instead be preparing for the Super Bowl after they defeated Cincinnati 23-20 on Sunday.

It’s the second consecutive Pro Bowl selection for Cole, who also made the roster last season when he was a first-team All Pro.

He averaged a net of 43.8 yards per punt this season and recorded just one touchback while hitting 26 punts inside the 20-yard line.

Cole joins receiver Davante Adams, running back Josh Jacobs and defensive end Maxx Crosby as Raiders selections to the AFC roster.

The event will take place at noon.
