The NFL took the draft on the road this year, and found a warm welcome in Chicago.
And it appears they’re thinking about going someplace else in the future.
The league announced its calendar of events for next year, and the 2016 NFL Draft is listed on April 28-30, with the notation “(site TBD).”
Commissioner Roger Goodell was a big fan of his road show, calling it a “great decision,” after leaving New York and turning it into a three-day street festival.
And because of the response, it figures that more cities will try to get in on the action. Los Angeles is the usual suspect here, but Canton, Ohio has been mentioned as a possibility, a chance to cross-promote the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But if the NFL can create a bidding war, they certainly will, leaving it TBD as long as they possibly can.
Other key dates for 2016 include the legal tampering window beginning March 12, with March 15 as the start of the league year, with teams able to begin signing free agents at 4 p.m.
