Default Re: nfl draft could get pushed into may

Here's a link.

The time between the Super Bowl and the draft already feels long enough. It would make the offseason between May and training camp shorter though.

The NFL and NFLPA are on the verge of pushing the NFL Draft back to May and moving the start of the league year to before the NFL Scouting Combine, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. Both sides have had dialogue about resetting the league’s calendar in an attempt to create a year-long continuum.

The discussed proposal adjusts the current schedule to begin the NFL Scouting Combine in March and free agency at the beginning of April, with the draft taking place in May. The players and the NFLPA were allegedly stalling at the idea of having free agency being backed up, leaving players with uncertain futures.

According to Schefter, the NFL and NFLPA are close to putting these calendar changes in for the next three years.
