You can either shovel snow after Christmas or pack your back and put that Hawaiian shirt and suntan lotion in your luggage.

Don’t forget the sunglasses.

The 2016 Pro Bowl will be televised live on ESPN from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. It will again serve as the signature event to kick off Super Bowl week. CBS will broadcast Super Bowl 50 a week later on Sunday, February 7.

Fans can help send their favorite players to the 2016 Pro Bowl by voting online and on web-enabled mobile phones at http://www.NFL.com/probowl/ballot. Balloting will conclude on Tuesday, December 15.

The 2016 Pro Bowl will continue using the revised game format that debuted with the 2014 Pro Bowl, with NFL Legends captains having final say over Pro Bowl Draft decisions. The Pro Bowl will remain “unconferenced,” with several key playing rules changed. Players will be selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players and later assigned to Pro Bowl teams via a fantasy football-style draft.

The 2016 Pro Bowl Draft Show will be televised on Wednesday, January 27 in primetime on ESPN2.

Four leading vote getters – comprised of two offensive and two defensive player captains – will be joined by two NFL.com fantasy football champions to draft players.

The fantasy football champion will have Hall of Fame help. Two Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receivers – Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice – will serve as NFL Legends captains for the 2016 Pro Bowl.

The Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be eligible for the Pro Bowl Draft.

NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 18. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.
