The NFLPA may have approved of the new CBA, but the NFL still has to contend with the impact coronavirus is having across the country. With NFL free agency scheduled to start this week, the league has made a decision on whether to keep things on schedule.

According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter, the NFL will not move the start of the new league year and expects to start on time. However, there are reportedly "ongoing conversations," which could conceivably change that situation. But Schefter concluded that teams seem to feel that it is going to happen.

Unfortunately, the same can't exactly be said about the 2020 NFL Draft. Reports earlier today indicated that the NFL is pulling out of Las Vegas and rescheduling the event for late-May.

But at the very least, it looks like we're going to get the NFL free agency frenzy starting on time.

Considering how many star QBs are slated to enter NFL free agency, 2020 could be a pivotal year for many franchises.

Tom Brady, Philip Rivers, Teddy Bridgewater and Marcus Mariota are just a few big names set to hit the open market. The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly in ongoing negotiations with Dak Prescott and the Tennessee Titans just gave Ryan Tannehill a big extension.

What do you think will be the biggest move in NFL free agency this month?
