The NFL is discussing ways to improve the Pro Bowl and its week of events, including possibly eliminating the traditional game itself, according to a report.
Roger Goodell, speaking at Tuesday's Spring League Meeting, conveyed that in discussions with the NFL Players Association and league players they discussed "what works and doesn't work" with the event.
"I think the conclusion was that the game itself, doesn't work," Goodell said.
"And that we needed to find a different way to celebrate our players. Celebrate the fact that, these being our Pro Bowler players, the best players in our league, and give them an opportunity to celebrate that with our fans. We talked an awful lot about some of the events around the Pro Bowl are really extremely popular, whether it's the quarterback challenge or some of the other events, so those are things that we'll probably build on."
