Chris Kluwe questions legality of Pro Bowl changes


Oakland Raiders punter Chris Kluwe has never shied away from controversy or chiming in with his opinion. As the NFL announces changes to the Pro Bowl, Kluwe took to Twitter to question the changes.

At the heart of what he is saying is that “return specialists” could essentially lose money due to the changes the NFL has made. They’ve eliminated their role in the Pro Bowl and given it to a defensive back. Which at first glance seems insignificant except for the fact that return specialists might have Pro Bowl incentives in their contract.

A return specialist cannot collect on a incentive by making the Pro Bowl if the NFL has eliminated the Pro Bowl spot.
