The accolades are stacking up for Maxx Crosby. Weeks after heading to his first Pro Bowl, the battery of the Raiders defense has taken home two team awards as well.

Monday, Crosby was named the Commitment to Excellence Award as well as the Craig Long Award.

The Commitment to Excellence Award is voted on by teammates while the Craig Long Award is voted on by select local media.

This means Crosby has now been honored for his work on the field, in the locker room, and in the media room.

Crosby is a vital part of the Raiders defense. His energy is contagious, affecting his teammates both in tangible and intangible ways.

He becomes the first player to win the Commitment to Excellence award since the departure of Rodney Hudson who had won it the previous four years. As for the Craig Long Award, Darren Waller had won it the past two years.

Crosby also joins Charles Woodson as the only Raiders to win both awards. And just like Woodson in 2015, he does it in the same season. Woodson was also named to a Pro Bowl in that same season, just like Crosby.
