NFL Draft 

The Buffalo Bills 2020 NFL Draft started early during the free agency period when the organization decided to give Josh Allen who is now in his third year at starting quarterback a sure shot consistent deep threat by trading their 22nd overall pick to the Minnesota Vikings for Stephon Diggs. The Bills were more than ecstatic to already have Day 1 taken care weeks before the draft. So on Day 2 and Day 3 this is what the Bills decided to do in the NFL Draft.

NBA News

According to many sources, the NBA will be looking to open practice facilities to players who live in cities and states that have eased  their stay at home orders. The NBA has also made it clear that just because this will be taking place starting May 1st it doesn’t mean that the NBA season will take place. Do you think that it is too early for the NBA to be opening practice facilities to the players?
