The NFL used to release the schedule for the upcoming season before the draft in mid-April. During the Covid year with no fans in attendance, they opted to release it in May, after the draft. It looks like the league is sticking with that plan as they have announced that May 12th is the date this year. The full press release from the league appears below.
