At times, it may seem like it, but the Pro Bowl is not actually two-hand touch. Players wanting to avoid injury lessen contact by letting forward-progress rules take over. You don't have to take a receiver or running back to the ground that way.
Brady, who is 44, announced his retirement from the NFL in February 2022, only to change his mind in March using the same “unfinished business” language that he did in today's tweet. On March 13, he wrote, “These past two months I've realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands.
The winning Pro Bowlers will make $80,000 while the losing players make $40,000. That isn't chump change by any means.

Unlike the NBA, MLB and NHL's all-star games — which occur midway through their respective seasons — the Pro Bowl consists of players who have already completed their seasons. The game features little, if any, defense at all and becomes a glorified contest of two-hand-touch.
