The NFL schedule is set to come out on May 15, according to multiple reports.

Sports Business Journal's Ben Fischer was the first to report the date of the NFL schedule release with ESPN's Adam Schefter confirming the report.

The exact date seemed to be up in the air as many people assumed the schedule would be released May 9. Each of the past three years, the schedule has been released exactly two weeks after the NFL Draft and on the second Thursday of May.

That will not be the case this year.

The NFL teased a schedule announcement on X on May 3 but did not provide an official date for the release. The video only included, "Coming in May."

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk believes the most likely date at this point is May 16. "How about next week? That’s currently looking more likely," Florio said. "Especially since next week is a big week for the TV industry, with the 'upfront' presentations in New York. Given that the league now authorizes each of the networks to announce a game or two in the days preceding the full release, it makes sense for the networks to generate maximum buzz by sharing a taste of the schedule on the day they unveil their full fall lineups."

Now we know it will be on a Wednesday this year.
