NFL to “Reimagine” 2021 Pro Bowl – Announce 2022 Location
The NFL says there will not be a 2021 Pro Bowl, instead, the league said it will "reimagine" the yearly event.
The NFL continues to adapt to the current pandemic world that we live in, with a virtual NFL draft this year, limited training camps, no pre-season games, and having to move schedules around during the regular season due to COVID-19 outbreaks within teams, and now no Pro Bowl game.
Fans will still get the opportunity to vote for their favorite players when the NFL opens voting for the 2021 Pro Bowl Roster beginning on November 17th.
The full 88-player Pro Bowl rosters will be unveiled in December after votes from fans, players, and coaches are tallied. The NFL says it will also "create a variety of engaging activities to replace the Pro Bowl game this season," whatever that means.
The league also announced today that Las Vegas and the Raiders' new Allegiant Stadium will host the 2022 Pro Bowl game, which is also the home of the 2022 NFL Draft, ahhhhh, the NFL and Vegas, what could go wrong?
