One only needs to look at the threads permeating this board to know that it’s the offseason. However, this year it’s a bit different without the combine to divert our attention away from frivolous trades, management bashing and general we suck threads. At least in the past, the combine served a purpose to begin to showcase on a level field the potential draft picks available. This year we don’t have the annual NFL meat market with the Run Rich Run side show. We just have to wait a few weeks longer until we have some actual NFL focus activities. Until then, here are the dates to look forward to, to get through all of the .net idiocy.
transition and franchise tags
Legal negotiating window ahead of free agency
Free agency begins
New coaches can begin offseason workouts
All coaches can begin offseason workouts
So hang on boys and girls. We have a week before we can start (or continue?) gnashing our teeth about who or if to tag and why. We still have about a month before we are all disappointed, excited, confused about the free agency direction of this team. Be patient, have fun and don’t go too far down the offseason rabbit hole.
