Dallas has been chosen as the host of the 2018 NFL draft, with all three days taking place at AT&T Stadium, commissioner Roger Goodell announced Wednesday.
The event will be held April 26-28 at the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium in Arlington, Texas. The Cowboys had earlier pushed for the draft to be held at both AT&T Stadium and The Star, the team’s new training facility in Frisco.
Philadelphia had been in contention to again host the draft, while Green Bay and Kansas City were considered long shots.
It will be the first time the draft will happen in an NFL stadium. Last year’s event drew an estimated 250,000 fans and was held outdoors for the first time, taking place on the steps of the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art.
The draft never has been held in Texas. A move there represents yet another venue for the event after a run from 1965 to 2014 in which the draft was held annually in New York.
After two years in Chicago, the draft returned to Philadelphia earlier this year for the first time since 1961.
It took Brady fewer games to reach the mark than Favre and Manning. Brady, 40, only needed 240 regular season games to compile those 186 wins. On the other hand, it took Favre 298 games while Manning played in 265 games. Now, Brady can break the all-time record for most regular season wins by knocking off the New York Jets next Sunday.
What does this mean for Brady?
This is yet another reason the five-time Super Bowl champion is considered by many to be the greatest quarterback of all-time. Brady is a four-time Super Bowl MVP, a two-time league MVP, and a 12-time Pro Bowler. His entire career is loaded with accomplishments.
