Cornerback Jaylon Johnson and defensive end Montez Sweat represented the Bears in the 2024 Pro Bowl Games and took ChicagoBears.com along for the trip.
Alongside the Pro Bowl Games, the NFL also hosted the Flag Football Championships in Orlando last weekend and celebrated the event with an NFL Flag Fan Fest Thursday at University of Central Florida.
Hundreds of youth girls and boys flag players attended the event to kick off their tournament, which showcased teams that won at the 2023 NFL Flag Regionals. Over 250 teams across multiple levels of flag football, including youth, adult and international teams, participated in the tournament.
The event included activities for kids and their families including flag football drills, inflatable obstacle courses, field goal challenges, a fan store, a trophy display and a "play like a girl" braid bar and selfie station.
Player participation for the Pro Bowl Games began with NFC and AFC practices at Camping World Stadium on Friday and Saturday morning.
