Goodbye Radio City Music Hall.

According to a report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the 2015 NFL Draft will not be held at Radio City Music Hall in New York, which has been venue for the league's annual draft since 2006.

Letters were sent on Thursday from the NFL to Chicago, Los Angeles and New York City, requesting more information about their plans to host the draft, a source told Rapoport.

With Radio City being booked in April and May next year, the draft would take place at Madison Square Garden if the league decides to keep the draft in New York.

The NFL has circled two potential time frames for the the 2015 NFL Draft, which include April 22-25 and April 29-May 2, indicating that the draft will now be a four-day event.

NFL officials will likely visit each potential venue and make a decision by the end of the summer.
