On Wednesday, the NFL announced the drastic changes they were making to the Pro Bowl starting this year. San Diego Chargers safety Eric Weddle says he doesn’t care about the changes made.
Weddle, who has been voted All-Pro multiple times, has often been snubbed out of his ticket to Hawaii (and Miami that one strange year; yeah that one).
I’m not going to make it, so I don’t really care,” Weddle said, via Michael Gehlken of U-T San Diego. “I care about being the best. For the fans who vote me, I appreciate them. But it’s not really high on my priority list. Hopefully, it’s good for all the fans and stuff, but highly likely I’m not going to be there
Weddle says he doesn’t need the Pro Bowl nod to validate his hard work.
I know where I stand in the league. I don’t need that to validate where I am. I just want to win
People have started recognizing for what he is; an elite safety in the NFL. Plus, I’m sure those All-Pro nods mean more to players then the Pro Bowl. Unless, of course, you’re just in it for the free trip to Hawaii.
