NFL contemplating plans for draft, league meetings

Plans for the upcoming owners meetings in Florida and the NFL draft in Las Vegas next month remain in place, but the league is monitoring the situation due to the fear of spread of the coronavirus.

NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy told ESPN that owners still are scheduled to meet in Palm Beach, Fla., for annual spring meetings March 29-April 1. The NFL draft, scheduled for April 23-25, remains on track to be held in Sin City.

“We will continue to monitor and share guidance as the situation warrants and as our experts recommend,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy said the World Health Organization (WHO) is advising the NFL on best practices, and alterations to any planned events would be made in conjunction with WHO’s guidance.
