Nick Saban, Dabo Swinney want NFL declaration date moved back

Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney are set to face off against each other on Monday night when the Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers compete for the College Football Playoff championship. Both teams are extremely good football teams and their coaches are among the best current coaches in the nation.

While the game is the biggest thing on their minds, both coaches talked about wanting the NFL declaration date and evaluations moved back. They both believe that it is a distraction this time of year to players playing in bowl games and looking to prepare themselves for a championship game.

Here are a few tweets with some quotes from both coaches:

There is no question that having these two coaches ask for it to be moved back could make a difference. The NFL isn’t likely to make the change, but it helps having these two lobbying for a change.
