Back in November, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the NFL and and NFL Players Association tentatively agreed upon a chunk of key dates for the 2021 offseason.
With so much to still be determined, and with the possibility that all dates are subject to change, here's a look at what's been discussed thus far:
Feb. 23: First day for clubs to designate Franchise or Transition Players.
March 9: Prior to 4:00 p.m., New York time, deadline for clubs to designate Franchise or Transition Players.
March 17: The new league year and free agency period begin at 4:00 p.m., New York time.
Apr. 5: Clubs that hired a new head coach after the end of the 2020 regular season, like the Chargers, may begin offseason workout programs.
