Football returns next week, sort of

The extended offseason break for NFL players ends next week, as offseason programs launch for four teams on April 1:  the Browns, Chiefs, Eagles, and Chargers.

The next day, the Cardinals, Bills, Bears, and Jaguars get rolling.

Each team may have nine weeks of workouts, culminating in 10 days of organized training activities.  Also, every team may have one mandatory minicamp, and each team with a new coach may have a voluntary minicamp.

Every franchise except the Rams will have a mandatory minicamp.

The offseason workouts and practices continue into June, giving players roughly six weeks off before training camp opens.

Here’s a team-by-team list of opening dates, closing dates, and minicamp dates.

    Hey, guys, if you hate it so much, don’t read it. Personally, I thought it was interesting (and gee, it took me a whole 30 seconds to read). Oh wait, I forgot–you must be the cool guys I remember from junior high.

    Thanks, Mike!

    This affects the top of the draft, if Branden Albert comes in to KC and shows his back is 100%, Chiefs dont go OL with first pick
