The NFL will release the regular season schedule for 2017 on Thursday.

Detroit Lions president Rod Wood revealed the news as the team introduced their new uniforms.

"I don't have anything else other than getting this renovation done," Wood said when asked what was next on his agenda. "That's the thing I got to focus on getting done before the season starts.

"The schedule coming out next Thursday will be a focus, too."

The release would come a week before the league's annual draft, set to start in Philadelphia on April 27.
