“No Precise Date Set Yet” For Schedule Release
In response to Monday’s out-of-the-blue release of the NFL’s preseason schedule, we’ve been flooded with questions about the expected release of the real thing -- the regular-season slate of games. And so we asked NFL spokesman Greg Aiello about it. Aiello said by e-mail that the schedule most likely will be released in the first half of April. “Same as always,” Aiello said. But Aiello added that there is “no precise date set yet.” Our semi-educated guess is that it will come next Tuesday or Wednesday, April 7 or 8. Stay tuned. UPDATE: As one source points out, it’s unlikely that the schedule will be released next week, since it coincides with the opening week of baseball and the run-up to the Masters. Our revised guess is Tuesday, April 14.
