Raiders rookie wide receiver Amari Cooper was added to the Pro Bowl Thursday as a replacement for Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

Cooper led NFL rookies in nearly every receiving category and became the first Raiders rookie ever to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards. He finished his first season with 72 receptions for 1,070 yards and six touchdowns; his 72 catches are the most ever by a wide receiver age 21 or younger.

He becomes just the sixth rookie in Raiders history to make the Pro Bowl.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was added to the Pro Bowl earlier this week. The Raiders have five Pro Bowlers for the first time since 2002.
