Posted · Add Comment

The NFL announced Tuesday that it is moving the 2014 draft to May 8–10 for next year.

The draft has traditionally been held on the final weekend of April each year, but is being moved due to a scheduling conflict at Radio City Music Hall. The moving of the draft is not expected to have much effect on teams' organized team activities and mini-camps, and there is no word on whether or not the change from April to May will be made permanent.

As for other dates set for the league year for 2014:

The NFL clubs also were informed that there would be no significant changes in the dates of other off-season events next year:

* Several Regional Combines will be held on various dates from Jan. 24 through Feb. 16, 2014. Some Regional Combines may be held after the National Combine in Indianapolis.

* The National Combine in Indianapolis will be held from Feb. 18-25, 2014.

* The new League Year, and the Free Agency period, will begin on March 11, 2014.

* The Annual Meeting will be held in Orlando, Florida, on March 23-26, 2014.
