Report: NFL Likely to Suspend Pro Bowl for At Least One Season, Maybe More


April 26, 2012

Roger Goodell will suspend anyone or anything apparently. reports that the NFL and its commissioner are likely to suspend the Pro Bowl for at least the 2013 season. The game is scheduled to be played the week before the Feb. 3 Super Bowl in New Orleans, but the site for this year's Pro Bowl has not been announced because the game is up in the air.

Goodell was critical of the game this year after lackluster effort from players on both sides, and that is apparently part of his decision-making process, according to ESPN. He's also said in the past, including in the week following the game, that eliminating the Pro Bowl would be a possibility.

According to ESPN, players will still be "selected" for the Pro Bowl, which would still carry some importance because of contract clauses that reward players for making the Pro Bowl roster.
