The NFL hopes to extract further milk from the offseason cow by spreading out the major tent poles of the non-game portion of the calendar: (1) Scouting Combine; (2) free agency; and (3) draft.
But change is unlikely, at least for now.
According to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, the NFLPA remains concerned about a delayed launch of free agency. As a result, the efforts to change the calendar are “unlikely to go anywhere.”
The league would like to move the Combine from February to March, free agency from March to April, and the draft from April to May.
