    So this means less time between the Super Bowl and free agency, but more Path to the Draft episodes.

    If they make it so that the kids' finals are done...then it is OK. If not, and they are going to be doing this right in the middle of finals...this is a really bad idea. Most of these kids are going to need that degree...and don't need the distractions during that time. (Of course, they probably don't give a crap...)

    i think it is broken, too much time between the start of FA and the draft but its just my opinion

    The word circulating is that the draft in 2014 would start on Thursday May 15th.

    There is also talk that the "Free Agency before combine" is not 100% guaranteed to happen, but if it did it would most likely mean the combine would move to March. Free Agency start date would likely stay the same.

    They're trying to make the NFL a year round sport. I love football, but was this really necessary?

    Well unfortunately most dont go to NFL with a degree regardless and there is really no excuse for the better players that have the financial means
