The NFL is reportedly considering moving the location of its Pro Bowl game in the years to come.

This year's game, played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, didn't have the best turnout, though the weather was poor in Central Florida this afternoon.

Still, the environment inside the stadium wasn't the best.

A spokesman for the NFL told the Orlando Sentinel that a decision on the location for future games hasn't been made yet, though one Central Florida columnist speculates that the game won't be back.

“We haven’t made any decisions and won’t until after this game,” Peter O’Reilly, the NFL’s Senior Vice President of Events, told Mike Bianchi. “… Making sure that Camping World is full and vibrant on game day will tell us Orlando has not only been a great destination for these three years, but where it [the Pro Bowl] should continue to be.”

The NFL could reportedly move the Pro Bowl to the same city of the Super Bowl, which rotates on an annual basis.

There is also a school of thought that the league may want to rotate the Pro Bowl into different warm-weather cities. There has even been some discussion — with the next two Super Bowls being in Miami and Tampa — about putting the Pro Bowl in the same city as the Super Bowl for those seasons and perhaps resurfacing in Orlando after that.

Stay tuned.
