Looks like the combine is leaving Indy
After 34 years of having the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana it looks like the league might be moving on to other cities around the country.
Mickey Shuey of IBJ.com has the details:
In a communication to all 32 of the league’s teams Wednesday morning, the NFL said it is accepting bids from franchises that would like to host the five-day event for each year from 2023 to 2028, adopting a tactic similar to what it has done with the Super Bowl and more recently the NFL Draft.
Of course the scouting combine was canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But it doesn’t surprise me that the NFL is looking to host it in other cities given that they did the same thing with the NFL Draft. For years the draft was in New York City and then several years ago they started to have it rotate to other cities.
Of course people won’t like this move, but the NFL is looking to do whatever it takes to improve their profits.
