Report: NFL could release 2023 schedule May 11
The 2023 NFL draft may be over, but there are still offseason h’orderves to keep fans satiated until the fall.
According to Adam Schefter from ESPN, commissioner Roger Goodell met with Howard Katz, who oversees scheduling for the league, on Monday. The league is looking at May 11 as its release date for the 2023 schedule. Nothing is yet official.
What was gumming up the works, Schefter notes, were the Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson situations. Now that Rodgers has been traded to the New York Jets and the Baltimore Ravens and Jackson have agreed to terms, the league feels safe to release the schedule two weeks after the draft.
The 2023 schedule already has some interesting matchups as the opponents have been set since the end of last season thanks to the scheduling formula. The Kansas City Chiefs will have another go at it against the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. Will the league also schedule the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys in prime time for the 20th consecutive season?
