Yet another significant change has been made to the NFL Pro Bowl. Players who are selected to participate in the 2014 edition of “The Game That Just Won’t Go Away” will no longer be rocking red and blue uniforms. On Tuesday, Nike unveiled new uniforms for the 2014 Pro Bowl that have an entirely different look and feel.
The new threads are more in line with the uniform war that has been going on across college football for a few years now. One team will wear white and orange while the other wears black and neon yellow. The black and yellow uniforms bear a striking resemblance to some of the designs Oregon has worn recently, which is no surprise since Nike designed them.
Over the summer, the NFL announced that it has eliminated the traditional AFC vs. NFC format and that teams will now be chosen fantasy draft-style by captains. The game is well on its way to being saved (not).
