The NFL and NFL Players Association have reached an agreement on several key dates for next offseason.
Per an official memo from the NFLPA obtained by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, the franchise and transition tag period will run from Feb. 22-March 8 and free agency will begin on March 16 at 4 p.m. ET.
Next year's draft will be held from April 28-30. The NFL previously announced that the 2022 draft will be held in Las Vegas. The city was supposed to host the 2020 event, but it went virtual because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
