And it’s been scrapped in favor of a new Pro Bowl Games event starting this season.

There will also be a flag football game at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on February 5th.

The Pro Bowl will now be a week-long event between AFC and NFC stars.

Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions has agreed to help with the promotion and programming of the event.

He will also be part of the coaching staff for the flag football game at the end of the week.

NFL manager Peter O’Reilly told the Associated Press, “The Pro Bowl is something that we’ve been looking at for a while and it’s really evolving.

“After last year’s game, we really made the decision based on a lot of internal discussions, getting feedback from GMs and coaches, and getting a lot of feedback from players.

“We believe there is a real opportunity here to do something different and move away from the traditional tackle game of football.

“We decided the goal was to celebrate 88 of the NFL’s biggest stars in a really positive, fun, yet competitive way.

“The very direct feedback from people who have been to the Pro Bowl recently has been to keep the construct of the week and make sure you have that multi-day element.

“It was overwhelmingly positive from both players and clubs.”
