Trash talking begins between Pro Bowl Captains

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Pro Bowl 2016 captains, Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin met with the media today ahead Sunday's Pro Bowl. While the game may still be days away, the NFL legends have already thrown down the gauntlet. 

"It's a time to relax a little bit with your family but still the objective here is to play quality football and that's what I want to bring to 2016 and in the process as I stated earlier, Michael Irvin is going down the same way Dion Sanders went down." said Rice. 

But, the Playmaker had some words of his own for the three time Super Bowl champ.  

"I want to lift Jerry way up so that when I beat him you can put me on top of him. You see what I'm saying, this is a great dude. He's done great things. But I will beat him greatly. You understand what I'm saying." said Irvin. 

The two NFL legends will go head to head this Sunday at Aloha Stadium. Kick off for this year's Pro Bowl is set for 2 PM HST.
