2014 Draft moved to May; rest of NFL calendar stays, for now

2014 NFL draft scheduled for May 8-10

The NFL announced Tuesday that next year’s combine will be held Feb. 18-25 while the league year — and the ensuing free agency frenzy — will begin on March 11. Those dates remain in line with the current 2013 calendar.

The NFL would need approval from the NFL Players Association to make any other significant changes to the calendar.

It remains to be seen what tangible impact this ends up having, but for now, we're guessing there will be somewhat fewer unsigned veterans by the time the draft rolls around next year.
