Green Bay Delays Bid To Host NFL Draft

Green Bay still wants to host the N-F-L Draft, but it will have to wait until 2021, at the earliest.  The Packers recently sent a revised letter of interest to the league.  The team wants to wait until the new Brown County Expo Center is opened and construction hasn't started yet.  The new center will replace the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena just east of Lambeau Field.  It's expected to open sometime in 2022, but a lawsuit filed over the half-cent sales tax could delay the project.
