The 49ers had six players nominated for the 2023 Pro Bowl, and fans can tune into the newly revamped event a week before Super Bowl Sunday.

It seems as if the NFL has unsuccessfully tried to make the Pro Bowl relevant for years.

Turning the NFC-AFC all-star game into a draftable matchup featuring “head coaches” like Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders, moving the game from the weekend after the Super Bowl to the weekend before it, moving the location from Hawaii to Florida and a slew of other attempts to draw fans’ interests all seem to have failed.

Perhaps the 2020 pandemic that canceled the game ultimately convinced the league to shake things up entirely.

Well, that’s the case for the 2023 Pro Bowl, which won’t feature the doldrums of a watered-down tackle game with players only half-trying.

Instead, this year’s version will feature some crazy skills competitions, followed by a flag football game on Sunday, Feb. 5.

Here’s everything you’ll need to know about the 2023 Pro Bowl.
