Pro Bowl checks won't last
Unless cooler heads prevail, it's going to be awhile before NFL players get paid again.
With a lockout looming, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, wide reveiver DeSean Hackson and kicker David Akers would be smart tucking away the $45,000 shares they pocketed when the NFC defeated the AFC 55-41 Sunday in Honolulu.
The same could be said of their AFC counterparts, who made $22,500 each.
It's obvious a new collective bargaining agreement will have to include a bump up from 16 to 18 regular season games, a leap even established owners like Art Rooney are anything but thrilled about.
