(New York, NY)  --  The NFL is changing its Pro Bowl format.  The league is doing away with the familiar conference matchup that pits the AFC against the NFC.  Instead, players will be selected in a vote by fans, coaches and players, without regard to conference.  Players will be assigned to teams through a Pro Bowl draft.  Two leading vote getters will join two fantasy football champions to draft players.  Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will serve as alumni team captains, assisting in the draft Process.  The Pro Bowl player draft will air on NFL Network January 22nd.  The 2014 Pro Bowl will take place Sunday, January 26th at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
