Moving 2014 NFL Draft and League Year Must Happen

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

The off-season may never be the same again.

NFL owners are in Boston this week for the league's spring meeting, which kicked off yesterday.

One of the possible topics of discussion, besides deciding which cities will host Super Bowls L and LI, is a potential change to the league year calender. A very major change.

Adam Schefter tweeted some inside info yesterday about how the NFL may adjust the off-season schedule.

Ian Rapoport reports that the league is looking at May 15th as a possible start day for the 2014 NFL Draft.

Moving the start of the league year to before the combine means free agency beginning around mid-February, unless they also plan on moving the combine back. Which means the action starts shortly after the Super Bowl.

And with the draft pushed back to May, the major off-season milestones would be more spaced out, shortening that "dead" period in the summer when absolutely nothing happens and thus making the off-season instantly feel a little quicker and a little less boring. It also gives everyone a little extra time to focus on the draft once the initial free agency frenzy quiets.

I like it. I like it a lot. I'm all for it. Let's make this happen. It's a big change, obviously, but it would certainly make things more enjoyable for the die-hard fans. It would also make the off-season a little more bearable as a blogger.

Put it up for vote and get that motion passed.
