INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A person with knowledge of the decision
tells The Associated Press that the NFL has canceled next month's rookie symposium.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league
has not officially made an announcement.
The symposium is the first league event canceled because of the owners' lockout, which is now in its 10th week. It was scheduled to begin June 26 in Canton, Ohio.
Teams and their draftees have not been allowed to communicate
since the NFL gained a stay in court upholding the lockout. The league's appeal of an injunction lifting it will be heard in U.S. District Court beginning June 3.
