Rice, Sanders try to rekindle interest in Pro Bow

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Deion Sanders is giving Jerry Rice one concession as Pro Bowl week begins: The legendary wide receiver will call the coin toss Tuesday that starts the process of picking teams.

Besides that, the Hall of Fame cornerback claims he has the upper hand under the game's new schoolyard-style format.

The Rice-Sanders rivalry is just one of several moves the NFL is using to try to rekindle interest in the Pro Bowl, set for Sunday in Hawaii. The game has been criticized as too lax in recent years by fans and even Commissioner Roger Goodell, putting the future of the game in question.

The biggest change is a two-day draft that will determine teams in a new "unconferenced" game. It plays directly to player egos and fan love for fantasy football.
