Re: 2014 NFL Key Dates

What exactly was the point of moving back the draft?

I'm not built for patience.

It is an attempt to narrow the time span between the draft and camp to keep the fans engaged. It is a double edge sword however, you keep the fans engaged throughout the year, but do a doozie to coaches and rookies as that extra month was very valuable to teams and getting their drafted players evaluated.

I doubt that we will Tag anyone (JG) as early as 2/17.
We have to be under the cap by 4:00 pm on 3/11. Going to be lots of activity in the next 30 days.
