   The lack of intensity in this year’s Pro Bowl previously had been criticized by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

   George Atallah, the assistant executive director of external affairs for the NFL Players Association, wrote Sunday on Twitter: “The Pro Bowl is an important tradition; one that we as players want to keep."
