There have been scattered rumors and reports over the past several months that the Senior Bowl, one of the primary pre-draft recruiting events and an unofficial convention of NFL scouts and media, will move out of Mobile, Alabama.
Previously, the game was linked to Tampa. Now, another Florida city is entering the discussion.
Per the Mobile Press-Register, organizers of the game has issued a former request for a proposal to several other cities, including Jacksonville. The other cities have not been identified.
The Senior Bowl’s contract with Ladd-Peebles Stadium, which has hosted the game and the week of practices preceding it since 1951, has expired. Talks between the Ladd-Peebles people and the Senior Bowl haven’t produced a new deal.
