NFL: Pro Bowl Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL will announce the Pro Bowl rosters tonight at 8pm ET on NFL Network and NFL.com. The annual all-star event will be held January 29 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, and will return the game to the AFC versus NFC format that was used prior to the last three years of “unconferenced” play.

Each conference will have 43 players announced tonight, with the coaches for the game adding a 44th player, their long snapper selection. The players are decided based on a consensus vote from fans, players, and coaches.

This year’s Pro Bowl will also include a Skills Showdown on the Thursday before the game itself. The Skills Showdown will be an AFC versus NFC competition and will include quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, linemen, linebackers, and defensive backs. Events during the competition will include dodgeball, a relay race, precision passing challenge, and a best hands competition.

Tickets for the Pro Bowl are currently on sale and can be purchased here.

The Miami Dolphins have several players who could make the roster tonight, including defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, defensive end Cameron Wake, and wide receiver Jarvis Landry. We will post the rosters as soon as they are available.
