NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Thursday that the league has dropped New York from discussions for hosting the 2015 NFL Draft.
“We’re focusing solely on Los Angeles and Chicago now,” Goodell told reporters.
New York has hosted the draft every year since 1965, but the league intends on giving it a change of scenery.
I’m all for the idea of moving the draft around. A choice between the three largest cities and media markets in the United States isn’t exactly taking a risk or thinking outside the box. The draft will be a sensation no matter where the league’s 32 teams and prospective rookies convene.
