NFL eliminated traditional AFC-NFC Pro Bowl matchup; will be replaced with Pro-Bowl fantasy-like draft, per ESPN sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 31, 2013
Now players will be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft (really). Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will be draft captains.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 31, 2013
No more kickoffs in Pro Bowl. Rosters will consist of 43 players per squad. Game will be played Jan 26 in Honolulu.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 31, 2013
It's official: Pro Bowl teams will be "drafted" @nflnetwork January 22. Kickoffs eliminated, possession changes at end of each quarter...— Andrew Siciliano (@AndrewSiciliano) July 31, 2013
Adam Schefter reports the the NFL is going to re-do how the players are selected to the NFL Pro Bowl. Players will be chosen in a draft instead of the voting system the NFL players do.
Kickoffs are also eliminated. Only a matter of time until the regular season gets rid of the kickoff also, but that's just my opinion.
