Report: Senior Bowl Could Replace Pro Bowl

senior bowl could replace pro bowl

We’ve been hearing for years that the Pro Bowl is a bad injury waiting to happen, people don’t watch, and the game is just no fun.

Well NFL.com columnist Albert Breer writes that Pro Bowl weekend could turn into a Saturday dinner and award ceremony based on recognizing the outstanding year NFL players had.

The next day would bring together the NFL’s current with its future as the Senior Bowl would be on display to allow teams and scouts to get a look at draft eligible Seniors, and kick off the NFL Draft calendar.

Breer: One idea that will be on the table is honoring each conference’s all-star teams at that event, and having a college all-star game afterward — a sort of “Today’s Stars Meet Tomorrow’s Stars” day — to replace the Pro Bowl. That game would likely be an existing college event, most likely the Senior Bowl, which would be moved to be part of the NFL calendar, with the thought that it could kick off draft season and highlight prospects on a bigger stage. However, the league would certainly be careful about NCAA rules entanglements.

I like the Senior Bowl concept myself.  I’m not sure how much thought has been put into it, but it could work.
