The NFL Draft has become one of the biggest events in the league, with this year’s event in Philadelphia being perhaps the most over-the-top yet.
After making stops in Chicago and Philadelphia, more and more cities want a shot at hosting the event in the coming years.
“Via the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys have submitted a formal bid to host next year’s proceedings. The event would be split between AT&T Stadium and The Star in Frisco, the team’s new practice facility.”
“They know how we can configure for X-amount of people,” Cowboys COO, executive V.P, and director of player personnel Stephen Jones said. “Then they’ll come back to us with what they want which night. We don’t know exactly what they’ll want to do. We’re waiting to hear on that.”
Dallas certainly has a rabid fanbase, like Philadelphia’s, so having next year’s draft in Big D would likely be a huge hit and a safe space for Drew Pearson.
Nothing is official, though, as Dallas has just submitted a bid at this time, but it’s certainly something to monitor going forward.
It’s difficult to imagine the NFL not coming to Dallas and Jerry World in the not-too-distant future.
