Source: NFL discusses future of Pro Bowl, including possible elimination

After multiple media outlets reported it, an anonymous source told ESPN that NFL owners are discussing the future direction of the Pro Bowl at the league meetings.

According to a source, players and NFL teams have spoken with the league and are now looking for alternatives to the week-long Pro Bowl celebration. This could include the elimination or reorganization of the traditional tackle match.

To approve a change, no vote is required. While the NFL is still exploring this issue with its players and TV partners, it hopes to make a decision by this summer.

Injuries and players pulling out have caused the annual all-star match to suffer on ESPN in recent years.

Since 1938, the NFL has hosted a traditional Pro Bowl match in some way. There are many celebrations surrounding the game, such as throwing competitions, dodgeball, and skills challenges.
