The Oakland Raiders will be sending Charles Woodson, Marcel Reece and Khalil Mack to the Pro Bowl

The National Football League announced Tuesday that safety Charles Woodson, fullback Marcel Reece and defensive end Khalil Mack have been named to the 2016 Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

In addition, second-year quarterback Derek Carr, rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper and running back Latavius Murray were named alternates for the annual all-star game.

Woodson, who announced his retirement on Tuesday, has been selected to his ninth Pro Bowl and his fifth as a Raider. He has started all 14 games this season while playing through a shoulder injury, racking up 82 tackles, five interceptions, nine passes defensed, one forced fumble and three fumble recoveries. His five interceptions are tied for sixth in the NFL.

This marks the fourth-consecutive Pro Bowl for Reece, who has been chosen every season since 2012. The versatile fullback has played in all 14 games this season, totaling 28 receptions for 266 yards and three touchdowns. The 9.5 yards per catch average is seventh among all running backs and fullbacks. 

This marks the first Pro Bowl selection for second-year Mack, who has started all 14 games while totaling 62 tackles, two forced fumbles, three passes defensed and a league-high 15 sacks. The former University of Buffalo star has already tied Hall of Famer Howie Long with a five-sack performance against the Broncos, and is now just one sack away from the franchise single-season record of 16.

The three Pro Bowlers for the Raiders mark the most the team has had since 2011 when they had four.
