The recent outbreak of the coronavirus couldn’t have come at a worse time for the NFL, as free agency and the upcoming draft are both on the horizon. On Saturday, it has been rumored that the NFL Draft will be moved out of Las Vegas and there is a chance it will not occur until late May.
Pro Football Weekly’s Hub Arash reported the following:
“According to my sources, Las Vegas is already canceled — it just hasn’t been announced yet — and the league will announce the Draft is being postponed until late May at least — as soon as the NFLPA’s decision on the new CBA is announced.”
If this report is certain, it weighs a large burden on the upcoming NFL season. When will training camp occur? How long will training camp last? Does this take a toll on the preseason?
