This year's Pro Bowl is the most declined invitation in history, but the players who will participate in the game Sunday night will be wearing some pretty slick jerseys.

Nike's uniforms feature its "Vapor Untouchable" technology, meaning they weigh less and have minimal seams. Athletes had direct input into the jersey design, which is supposed to improve stretch, mobility, range of motion and durability.

Nike also added gold to the uniforms this year, which fits into the NFL's theme for Super Bowl 50. The 50-yard lines in each stadium this season were gold as well.

Team Rice will take on Team Irvin at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, Sunday at 7 p.m. ET. Players were selected in a fantasy-style draft Wednesday night, with Michael Irvin taking Russell Wilson with his first pick and Jerry Rice countering with Eli Manning. Perhaps the most notable selection of the evening was Charles Woodson, who Rice drafted with the final pick. Woodson retired at the end of the season.

There usually isn't much of a reason to watch the Pro Bowl, but this year, it will be worth checking out just to see a legend go out on top.
