The 2012 Pro Bowl from Honolulu, HI is upon once again, and the Oakland Raiders will be well represented this year.
The Oakland Raiders had four placeyers invited to this year’s Pro Bowl, including long snapper Jon Condo, punter extraordinaire Shane Lechler, uber-kicker Sebastian Janikowski, and defensive tackle Richard Seymour. Along with the San Francisco 49ers across the Bay, Oakland will have their trio of specialists on hand with the LS, P and K all making the grade.
Amazingly this is Janikowski’s first ever Pro-Bowl, while only the second for Jon Condo in his career. The Silver and Black have two of the most seasoned Pro-Bowlers in attendance, as it will be Lechler’s and Seymour’s seventh time respectfully.
With the new regime being put into place in Oakland, having a core of guys like this, making the Pro-Bowl year after year, is always a plus when having coaching turnover. Hopefully they’ll be able to make the trip to Honolulu this time again next year as well.
