NFL Pro Bowl play compensation – additional information

The Pro Bowl, the NFL’s all-star game, was usually played one week after the Super Bowl. Since 2010, however, the Pro Bowl has been played between the final week of the playoffs and the Super Bowl, the annual championship game of the NFL. Around 50 million people watched the Pro Bowl game on TV in 2014, which is roughly half of the regular Super Bowl TV viewership. In 2015, almost 115 million of people in the U.S. watched the Super Bowl on TV.

Coaches, players and fans vote on the players that take part in the Pro Bowl. The players chosen to participate in the game receive some monetary compensation. Players on the winning team received 55 thousand U.S. dollars in compensation, while players on the losing team were paid 28 thousand U.S. dollars.

These figures are relatively small compared to players’ salaries. Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is the highest paid NFL player with a salary of 35.25 million U.S., and has played in three Pro Bowls so far. The Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the highest payrolls in the league, amassing 170 million U.S. dollars in player salaries. San Diego Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers, who has the second highest salary in the NFL in 2015, has played in five Pro Bowls.
