@AdamSchefter: NFL is proposing to overhaul its calendar, pushing back the combine to early March, free agency to early April, and the draft to early May.
@AdamSchefter: Want to know one more reason why NFL wants the draft in early May? TV sweeps are in May. Bigger ratings, bigger dollars.
@AdamSchefter: Idea of overhauled calendar is to lengthen NFL off-season and make football relevant over longer period with one big event each month.
@AdamSchefter: Under proposal, all NFL teams also would kick off training camp on same summer day, making it the official launch of the football season.
