Report: NFL draft returning to Chicago next year
The NFL Draft will be returning to Chicago for the second straight year, according to a report from NFL.com's Steve Wyche.
According to the report, Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will have a news conference on Tuesday and are expected to announce the decision.
Last year's draft was held at the 4,000-seat Roosevelt University Auditorium Theatre in downtown Chicago, the first time the draft had taken place outside of New York City since 1965. Chicago also previously hosted the draft in 1938, 1942-44, 1951 and 1962-64.
The draft had been held at Radio City Music Hall in midtown Manhattan since 2006.
The league already announced last month that the draft will take place April 28-30, 2016.
