2016 Pro Bowl Players

NFL

The National Football League is the only major sport that waits until he end of the season to play their version of an All Star game. The Pro Bowl returns to the tropical paradise of Hawaii on January 31 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu – one week before the Super Bowl.

With the biggest game of the season on the horizon, any player who was selected for the Pro Bowl but his team is in the Super Bowl will no play and an alternate player will be chosen. There will also be players who are unable to play the game due to injury.

In years past the Pro Bowl teams were the American Football Conference against the National Football Conference; but last year the NFL switched things up a bit and NFL Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin will select the players they want – just like when neighbourhood kids gather to play a game and the “team captain” chooses the players.

Unlike other sports like Major League Baseball, the Pro Bowl does not require every team to have a representative on the team. This year there were six teams who will not have a player at the annual Pro Bowl game New Orleans Saints, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears, and San Diego Chargers. The Carolina Panthers leads the list with 10 of their players going to Hawaii.
