Who needs a quarterback when you have a drone? That was probably the thinking behind the NFL’s newest event that will be held Thursday during the 2017 Pro Bowl Skills Showdown.
The event was promoted on the NFL’s official Twitter account.

It appears as if the drone will fly up to the sky with a football and then eventually drop it down to a player, who will try to catch it.
The NFL is clearly trying to generate more interest in Pro Bowl festivities and this event could do the trick.
The Pro Bowl skills competition airs 7 p.m. ET Thursday on ESPN.
