Good morning, New York Giants fans!
NFL free agency begins on Monday, with the negotiating window opening at noon ET. The league season and official signing window opens at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday. Adam Schefter is reporting that not everyone is happy about the league’s business as usual approach.
A glimpse of our world: With free agency on track for this week, some teams are planning to use private planes to fly in premier free agents. Still, those flights require pilots to leave home and work, and teams are not pleased about this. Teams NOT happy free agency this week.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 16, 2020
What will the Giants do this week? I talked about that with former NFL Executive of the Year Jeff Diamond on a new edition of the ‘Valentine’s Views’ podcast.
Schefter said Sunday on SportsCenter that there is "no way" the league will move forward with a "regular draft."
"There's not gonna be a crowd of fans at the draft this year. I don't need the NFL to tell me that right now to know that. I'm telling you right now, that's not going to happen," Schefter said. "The question is...is the draft going to be kept in place in Vegas? Are they gonna do it in a small, confined space? Are they gonna shift it to where the networks are doing it from their home headquarters? How are they gonna handle it? But I can tell you right now, there's no way that regular draft is happening in Vegas next month."
