The NFL’s schedule release date will come less than two weeks after the draft comes to an end. This year’s NFL Draft is scheduled to run from Thursday, April 29 through Saturday, May 1.
Though the NFL dealt with changes because of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the league still managed to play a 16-game regular season and make it through the playoffs and played the Super Bowl in February. Tampa Bay defeated Kansas City to claim the title at the end of the year.
In 2021, there’s hope that NFL stadiums will be at full capacity for the entire season, but there’s been no confirmation on that at this time.
