With the draft only 17 days away and in light of the NFL’s habit of releasing the regular-season schedule before the draft, the window for releasing the 2015 regular-season schedule is getting fairly narrow.
The current thinking, per a source with knowledge of the situation, is that the sheet will be removed from the schedule on Tuesday, April 21, Wednesday, April 22, or Thursday, April 23.
Wednesday seems to be the least likely, given that ESPN currently has a Major League Baseball game scheduled for that night. (Then again, the NFL schedule-release show likely would draw more eyeballs.)
We already know the “who” and the “where” for each of the 256 regular-season games; we just don’t know the “when.” And we still don’t know specifically when we’ll know the “when.” But April 21, 22, and 23 are the current hot spots.
