The 2016 NFL Draft will be held between April 28 and April 30, the NFL announced on Wednesday. The location of the draft has not yet been determined, which is going to be a big deal going forward given the changes made last year. Last year, the draft was held in Chicago, the first time the city had hosted the draft since 1964. New York City had been the host of the draft from 1965 to 2014.

NFL training camps for this coming season are set to get underway in late July, with the preseason set to begin on Aug. 9 with the Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio. The regular season will officially get underway when the New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 10.

The next two seasons were even more productive for Redman. Then, 2013 happened. “I got hit in training camp,” he recalled. Players get hit all of the time. That’s part of football. This injury was different, though. “A tingle went down to my toes every time I bent my head down,” he shared. “I couldn’t run at full speed. I couldn’t turn my head without it hurting. I was trying to fight through the pain and injury, but I couldn’t perform.” He was also scared, a big problem for an NFL player. “There I was, an NFL running back afraid of getting hit,” he said.

The Steelers put Redman on the inactive list for two weeks. “I kept complaining about my neck. I told them I needed to see a doctor.” One day in October, he checked in at the facility before a CAT scan he was finally able to schedule. Mike Tomlin caught up to him as the star running back was leaving for his appointment. “We’re going to release you. I tried fighting for you,” Tomlin said. Redman was stunned, even more so when he realized they were releasing him healthy instead of putting him on the injured reserve where he could have continued to receive a paycheck.
