There is no expenses-paid trip to Hawaii in it for the players this season.
But they still might appreciate your vote. The NFL made the decision for this season to move the all-star game to the site of the Super Bowl. That means the Pro Bowl will be played Jan. 31 in Miami, and no players from the Super Bowl clubs will be involved in the game. The short turnaround for players on the losing sides of the AFC and NFC Championship Games might not be too interested in wearing a helmet and pads the next week either.
The NFL opened the online polls for Pro Bowl voting on Monday. This link right here will take you directly to your own ballot. Balloting will end when the Packers-Bears game at Soldier Field concludes on Monday, Dec. 21. The Pro Bowl teams will be announced Dec. 29.
With no free trip to Hawaii in the mix, we're interested to see how many players back out of the game this year. More minor injuries crop up in January for star players than you can imagine.
Fan voting counts one-third in the selection process for the Pro Bowl with the players and coaches also getting one-third each.
