For months, we had believed that the NFL would release the 2013 regular season schedule on Tuesday, April 16. Or, in other words, today.
But on Monday, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com that no, the schedule actually won’t be ready for Tuesday. He went on to say that the league was finalizing the slate of games, and said that it could be ready later this week or next.
If the NFL is to be believed this time around, it’ll be this week, after what amounted to a pretty forgivable delay. The announcement is now scheduled for Thursday at 7 PM Central, to be exact.
With the schedule release, the league will kick off an eventful seven days, to be concluded the Thursday after that with the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
