NFL Offseason Schedule: Key Dates for 2024/25 Season

The Chiefs win the NFL grand final against San Francisco 25:22. The Super Bowl 2024 has attracted millions of fans to the television, football fever has the world firmly in its grip!

Bad news for all NFL fans: Unfortunately, the fact that the Super Bowl is over also means that the big football break is now beginning. However, it is still worth following the NFL until the start of the 2024/25 season, because these dates are scheduled until the start of the season.

Start of the “offseason”

The “offseason” is here!

After the biggest single sporting event of the year, the first thing to consider is the future of the NFL stars. Some players end their careers, others get a new contract.

► An important date when it comes to contracts is February 20th. From February 20th to March 5th, NFL teams have time to give the so-called “franchise tag” to players who have expiring contracts.

If an NFL player becomes a free agent (without a contract), his team can retain him for another year without having to offer a long-term contract. Players who play under this “franchise tag” receive a sum of money specified by the league.

► In addition to the “Franchise Tag” window, the NFL Scouting Combine also begins at the end of February. At this event, the talents for the upcoming draft are presented to the teams. This year the combine will take place from February 27th to March 4th. As every year, the venue is the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Start der Free Agency

► From March 11th to 13th, clubs will be allowed to contact the agents of out-of-contract players and begin contract negotiations. The start of free agency, the point at which players can sign a new contract with a new club, is March 13th.

Start of training in the NFL

► Teams that have hired a new head coach can begin their “offseason” training programs on April 1st.

► Teams that have not changed their head coach will begin training on April 15th.

NFL Draft 2024

► Probably the most important date in the “offseason” is of course the draft! The 2024 NFL Draft will take place in Detroit, the first round begins on April 26th.
