2018 - 2019 NFL PRO BOWL ROSTERS

2018 – 2019 NFL PRO BOWL ROSTERS

Via SBnation.com The NFL announced full rosters for the 2019 Pro Bowl in December in a special on NFL Network. The exhibition game, which takes place on Jan. 27 from Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, features the traditional AFC vs. NFC format after the league moved away from its drafting format it tried from 2014-16. That format was widely panned by fans and media alike.

The rosters are built based on votes from fans, coaches, and players, with recent years allowing for fan voting online and, notably, via Twitter this year. The three groups who vote are all weighted equally when determining who makes it to the Pro Bowl, each counting as one third of the vote.

Some players have dropped out due to injury, disinterest, or in the case of the Rams and Patriots, making the Super Bowl.

The Chargers staff will coach the AFC, while the Cowboys staff will be on the NFC’s sideline. Below, you can peep the rosters for both the AFC and NFC.
