Roach named to USA Today’s All-Joe Team

Posted Jan 24, 2014

Raiders LB Nick Roach was named in USA Today’s Friday edition to their All-Joe team for the 2013 season.

Raiders LB Nick Roach was named in USA Today’s Friday edition to their All-Joe team for the 2013 season.

USA Today Sports' All-Joe team was created in 1992 by longtime NFL writer Larry Weisman as a tribute to Joe Phillips, a 14-year defensive lineman who did yeoman's work for the Kansas City Chiefs that season. USA Today Sports has honored the unsung Joes ever since and compiles them in a 53-man roster that has at least one representative from every NFL team. Only players who have never been named to the Pro Bowl are eligible.

In his first season with the Silver and Black, Roach started all 16 games for the first time in his career and led the team in tackles with 152 (92 solo), which was also a career high. He played all 1,074 defensive snaps that the Raiders had, never coming off the field. Roach also provided a strong pass rush, finishing second on the team and leading all NFL middle linebackers with 5.5 sacks. He also recorded his first career interception and a career-high five forced fumbles.
