Maxx Crosby shows off new Raiders tattoo
Las Vegas Raiders pass rusher Maxx Crosby is about to enter his second season at the highest level as the once heralded AFC West franchise is currently making the transition from Oakland to “Sin City.” With Crosby already fully immersed in the organization and the toughness that comes along with wearing the silver and black, the Raiders defense has now further solidified his dedication to both the team and its fan base.
On Monday, Crosby unveiled some new ink on Twitter while revealing his new Raiders tattoo to the world.

The Raiders originally selected the 22-year-old Crosby in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Eastern Michigan. Although the up-and-coming pass rusher was initially thought to be just a role player for the Raiders upon being drafted a year ago, Crosby quickly became a staple of the team’s defensive attack while producing from the jump. With an impressive preseason effort highlighted by several appearances on HBO’s hit series, “Hard Knocks,” Crosby persevered through some early injury troubles en route to appearing in all 16 regular-season games as a rookie in 2019-20. Throughout that same span, Crosby tallied 47 total tackles, 10 sacks, four forced fumbles, and four pass defenses.
Overachieving and exceeding seemingly all of the expectations that initially surrounded him, the Raiders pass rusher will surely enter the upcoming 2020 campaign as a critical cog for the Las Vegas defense. Crosby will no doubt elevate the Raiders defense as the team will need to burst onto the scene upon officially making Las Vegas its home.
