With a drone, of course.
This year, the event will feature a special “Skills Showdown” which will air tonight on ESPN at 7:00 EST. The skills showdown will include a relay race in addition to passing and catching competitions. A proposed dodgeball game caught the fans’ interest when announced last year. And the NFL has now tweeted that the star of the Skills Showdown will be a drone drop.
According to the NFL tweet, the drone will “fly really high into the air” and drop a football to the players below, who will (presumably) catch it.
While the Pro Bowl may not be the most exciting game played in the next couple of weeks, the Skills Showdown promises to be, at least, entertaining.
