The polls are open and the voting has begun!
You can now begin voting on your favorite NFL players to compete in the 2014 Pro Bowl on Jan. 26. With balloting staying open until Dec. 26, you have a little time to cast your vote. However, with the Pro Bowl being “unconferenced” for the first time, meaning no AFC or NFC teams, there are a few changes to the process.
Once all the votes are cast, the four players (two offensive and two defensive players) with the highest amounts of votes will become captains. They will then be joined by two NFL.com fantasy football champions to draft the remaining players for their teams, but not before they bring in the big guns.
Pro Football Hall of Famers, Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders, are brought in to help the team captains and Fantasy Football champions draft their teams.
The consensus votes of the coaches, players and fans are what determine the 2014 Pro Bowl players. The combined votes of each group determine the 88 All-Star players eligible to compete in the game. However, the NFL players and coaches cannot vote until Dec. 23.
The unique thing about this voting process is that the NFL is the only sports league to combine votes between fans, players and coaches!
The 2014 Pro Bowl:Unconferenced is a match you do not want to miss! With teammates playing teammates, this can be anyone’s game!
