Raiders star edge Crosby signs 4-year ext

The Raiders have paid Max Crosby, one of the most disruptive edge rushers in the game, with a $96-million 4-year extension. The star edge has 52 career sacks with 27 coming in the last two seasons.

It’s been a long career for Crosby so far, “I don’t know whether my rookie year seems like 20 years ago or two days ago,” Crosby said. “Like, it’s crazy to me. But yeah, it’s been a blessing. I mean, it’s been a damn journey, and for me, all that matters at the end of the day is winning, winning for this organization.”

Raiders building around talent

“I pour my heart and soul into this, and I want to be the best leader and teammate I can be on a daily basis, and being a Raider is something that’s special to me. I’ve got real relationships from the owner all the way down to the janitor. I’m here every day for a reason. It’s like a family. There’s not many teams that operate like we do, and we’ve just got to translate that to winning, and it’s just exciting to get things rolling again.”

Raiders head coach Antonio Pierce knows players like Crosby add value off the field as well as on it. “By example, 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., every day,” he said. “Every day Maxx shows up ready to work. So when you’ve got those kinds of guys in your building, either vocally or by example, you’ve got a good culture and a good place.”
