Defensive tackle Richard Seymour, cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and punter Shane Lechler were the Raiders’ selections to the Pro Bowl Tuesday.
Seymour, who was at his most dominant earlier this season, is a reserve interior lineman with Baltimore’s Haloti Ngata and New England’s Vince Wilfork as the starters.
Asomugha is a starter at cornerback along with the Jets’ Darrelle Revis, with New England rookie Devin McCourty the third corner.
Running back Darren McFadden did not crack the top three running backs, with Jacksonville’s Maurice Jones-Drew (the starter), Houston’s Arian Foster and Kansas City’s Jamaal Charles getting the nod.
Place kicker Sebastian Janikowski, who set a Raiders scoring record with 135 points, lost out to Baltimore’s Billy Cundiff.
The Raiders announced that defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, tight end Zach Miller, McFadden and Janikowski were named as alternates, although it was not divulged at what level. All would have a chance to go to be added to the team if someone drops out because of injury.
