NFL considering moving schedule back in 2014

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 23, 2013 – 10:03 am

INDIANAPOLIS–The NFL is considering a plan to move offseason events back in the calendar next year. For example, the scouting combine would be moved to March, the start of free agency to April and the draft to May.

“Whatever the league thinks is best, count me in,” New York Giants GM Jerry Reese told reporters at the scouting combine on Saturday.

Reese heads the personnel department of a team facing salary cap problems similar to those confronting a lot of teams with star-quality players: A flat cap is forcing tough decisions.

“The cap stays flat and the dollars don’t make sense. You have to make tough decisions. When your cap is flat for 3-4 years, it’s tough to keep a lot of high salaries,” Reese said.

The Packers faced that situation recently when they released Charles Woodson; Greg Jennings continues to head toward free agency. The Giants released Ahmad Bradshaw. All of that puts an increased burden on teams to replace those types of esteemed veterans with young, affordable talent, but drafting near the bottom of the order increases the degree of difficulty, as the league’s system for parity prevails.

“When you’re picking 32nd in the draft, a lot of the players you’re picking are developmental,” Reese said. “Old-fashioned scouting is what we hang out hat on. We depend on our scouts. They see them practice. They see them play. They talk to the coaches.

“There are always good players in the draft. You have to see who fits your system.”

    Right Harold. And they need to back that up by letting Dom Capers go so he can destroy some other team’s defense. What a joke.
