Another domino has fallen due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
The 2020 NFL Draft has reportedly been delayed from its traditional April, according to Pro Football Weekly’s Hub Arash.
“According to my sources, Las Vegas is already canceled — it just hasn’t been announced yet — and the league will announce the Draft is being postponed until late May at least — as soon as the NFLPA’s decision on the new CBA is announced.”
Andy Slater would soon add to the news by stating the league informed host hotels that the draft will indeed not take place.
These reports comes on the heels of sporting events cancelling all around North America due to the outbreak of COVID-19, better known as coronavirus. The NBA was the first to do it after Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert contracted the virus, and soon, other leagues would follow suit as they saw it hit way too close to home.
