Among others, ESPN was one major entity that broke and released the news. Adam Schefter was in on the reporting action. Schefter announced very early in the morning on May 21 that Nashville was essentially a lock to host the event.
A different kind of pick tipping: Nashville is expected to be named host of the 2019 NFL Draft at this week’s owners meetings in Atlanta, per league sources.
