All teams were informed of the change on Tuesday after the league held discussions with club personnel and NFL business partners. Future dates for the NFL Draft in 2015 and beyond will be determined at a later date, the league said in a press release.

The NFL will consider a variety of alternative solutions, including holding the draft at other locations in either the New York area or in other cities.

NFL clubs were also informed that there would be no major adjustments to the dates of significant off-season events in 2014.
