Published Add your comment

The 2016 Pro Bowl draft took place last night and it was Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning who were the most sought-after picks. Wilson was selected first overall in the draft, with Manning being picked second - they’ll be on opposing sides in the NFL’s all-star game at the Aloha Stadium next Monday. So, will Team Jerry Rice take the victory or will it be Team Michael Irvin, whose notable picks include Aaron Donald, Geno Atkins and Devonta Freeman? Let us know your thoughts. Meanwhile, it’s been revealed that former New York Giants safety Tyler Sash was found to have extraordinarily high levels of CTE when he died last September. Sash passed away due to an accidental overdose of painkillers - CTE is a degenerative disease most commonly found in people, who have suffered repetitive brain trauma.
