NFL NFL Pushing Offseason Events

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/89...on-sources-say

Quote:
The NFL is proposing an overhaul to its offseason calendar, pushing back the combine to early March, the start of free agency to early April and the draft to early May, according to league sources.

The plan must be approved by the NFL Players Association, but the league already is pushing it aggressively, meeting on the issue most recently -- but not exclusively -- Thursday night in Indianapolis, where the NFL scouting combine is being held.

Under the proposal, all NFL teams also would kick off training camp on the same summer day, making it the official launch of the football season.

I hate this move as well. I like FA hitting 11 days after my birthday.

If anything, move the draft up a bit... Give a bit more time for F/A... It would allow teams to find solutions to questions they might not have time to answer the way the format is now. It would also give them a chance to work with the rookies even more so than they have had a chance to do so in the past.

Last two weeks of Feb: Combine.

Last day of February, teams must have made a decision on F/As R/F/As.

First weekend in March: NFL Draft.

Monday after draft free agency opens.

Pretty much the format that teams they have right now.
