Pro Bowl Selections, Tebow’s $12K Helmet

FOOTBALL

The all-stars have been selected for the NFL Pro Bowl on January 27th. With seven players selected, the Los Angeles Chargers have the most pro bowl pics while no Oakland Raiders, Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers players were selected.  Not surprisingly, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady got the nod (his 14th pro bowl selection, tying Peyton Manning, Bruce Matthews, Merlin Olsen and Tony Gonzalez for the most selections in the history of the game). Also for the history books, Denver Broncos rookie, Philip Lindsay became the first undrafted rookie offensive player named to a Pro Bowl roster. For a list of all selections, click here.

One of the stories circulating this week about President Trump has to do with his charitable organization paying for personal items including two portraits of himself and a signed Tim Tebow football helmet. Tebow is a former NFL quarterback and current baseball player on the New York Mets roster. The Foundation has agreed to re-donate certain items including the helmet which cost the foundation $12,000.
