The NFL could soon revamp its offseason schedule and move back the scouting combine, the start of free agency and the NFL Draft, ESPN.com's Adam Schefter reported on Thursday.

Under the proposal, the NFL would delay the start of the scouting combine to early March, move back the beginning of free agency to early April, and hold the draft in early May. It would amount to nearly a two-week push back for the three major events of the NFL offseason. The plan would also call for all teams to begin training camp on the same, "official" day in the summer.

Schefter reported that the NFL is "pushing the plan aggressively," though the players association must ultimately decide whether to adopt it.

According to Schefter, the NFL favors the plan as one that "lengthens" the offseason and gives each major event its own month of coverage and hype. It also would provide a universal launch of the season in training camp.
