Oakland Raiders long snapper Jon Condo has been added to the AFC Pro Bowl roster.
The Raiders announced the addition on Thursday. Condo will join Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski and punter Shane Lechler in Hawaii for the game on Jan. 29.
The Raiders' kicking game was one of the team's strengths this season. Janikowski tied the NFL record with a 63-yard field goal in the season opener at Denver and set a franchise record with six field goals on Nov. 27 against Chicago.
Lechler ranked second in the NFL by averaging 50.8 yards per punt and had a franchise-record 80-yarder against the Bears.
Condo was also selected as a Pro Bowler following the 2009 season.
