I am not sure when the last time is that you watched the NFL Pro Bowl, or when I watched it for that matter. But this Sunday (January 31), the 2016 version of the NFL’s “all-star” game will feature four former Louisville Cardinals. Teddy Bridgewater, Gary Barnidge, Eric Wood, and Elvis Dumervil will all be hanging out in Hawaii’s Aloha Stadium playing some football and representing their respective NFL teams, as well as the Cards of course.
