Davante Adams knows disrespect when he sees it.
And after Las Vegas Raiders’ Maxx Crosby was left off the All-Pro lists, Adams was dismayed.
“Maxx was brutally snubbed and somebody needs to be held accountable,” Adams tweeted.
Congrats to my teammates and other boys around the league on their all-pro nods! Maxx was brutally snubbed and somebody needs to be held accountable. As for me…that’s 3 1st team blessings in a row. God is great 🙌🏾

Crosby was a Second-team All-Pro last season and was named to his second straight Pro Bowl this season.
His 12.5 sacks were a career-high. So were his 88 tackles. He was tied for eighth in the NFL in sacks (fifth-most by an end), but he led the league in tackles for loss with 22.
Each edge rusher who was named an All-Pro (Nick Bosa, Micah Parsons, Myles Garrett, and Haason Reddick) had more sacks in the year. However, 14 defensive ends had more sacks than he did in 2021, yet he was still able to crack the second team.
That’s why Adams thinks the disrespect is unreal. Can you blame him? Crosby deserved respect and didn’t get it.
