The NFL has announced that North Texas is a finalist to host the 2023 NFL Scouting Combine.

Los Angeles, Indianapolis, and "Dallas" - though the Cowboys are technically based in Frisco and Arlington - were among the teams that submitted proposals for the 2023 combine.

FRISCO – A Jerry Jones Football Party is unlike any other, which is no doubt part of the appeal of North Texas being a finalist for the NFL Scouting Combine in 2023.

The annual event, which is set to take place this week in Indianapolis in 2022 and will return to some semblance of routine after COVID forced the 2021 combine to be staged remotely, has increasingly been recognised by the league as a cash cow that could be more profitable if it is on the move.

On Monday, the league confirmed that Indy will host the event for the following two years. And then?

The Combine has a strong possibility of becoming a touring road show that will visit North Texas in the future.

After decades of the NFL Draft being held in New York, the league made that cash-cow discovery in the draught. Now the NFL is likely to find out the same thing.

Los Angeles, Indianapolis, and "Dallas" - though the Cowboys are officially based in Frisco and Arlington - were among the bidders for the 2023 combine, according to the NFL.

Since the late 1980s, the combine has been held in Indianapolis, with the notion that Indiana is a "central geographical position." Of all, North Texas has the same advantage... plus a large airport hub... and the possibility of beautiful weather, even in February (Super Bowls excepted).

The combine is, of course, a forerunner to the NFL Draft, which is shifting in the coming years, with Las Vegas set to host in 2022, Kansas City in 2023, and three cities in the running for 2024: Green Bay, Detroit, and Washington.
