There are only 80 days until the draft

Here are some key dates to keep in mind:


February 20-26 - NFL Scouting Combine, Timing and Testing, Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, Ind.


March 9-11 - Teams may enter into contract talks with players who will be unrestricted free agents.


March 12 -There is a lot that goes on here so lets break down one-by-one:
4 p.m. deadline for teams to exercise 2013 contract options on all players with club options.
Prior to 4 p.m. teams must have submitted qualifying offers to restricted free agents they wish to keep right of first refusal for. They also must submit a salary offer to exclusive rights free agent players.
All 2012 player contracts will expire at 4 p.m. Teams must be under the 2013 salary cap at this time.
At 4 p.m. the 2013 League Year begins; trades are allowed and free agency begins.


March 17-20 - League meetings in Phoenix, Ariz.
April 25-27 - NFL Draft in New York City, NY.
May 20-22 - Spring league meeting, Boston, Mass.
September 5, 8-9 - 2013 season kickoff weekend

"Only" 80 days left...

Thankfully at least free agency begins in a month!

FA is allright, not that I expect us to be very big players.

Saints have a ton of work to do. Hire a DC, decide who stays, who goes . Juggle the cap sign FAs. Prepare for the draft. Fix a bad defense. Welcome back Sean!
