The NFL Scouting Combine has come to an end. All eyes will now look towards free agency.

On March 10, the free agency period officially begins. The trading period starts a little more than a week later, on March 19, before teams are allowed to begin offseason workouts on April 20. Teams with new head coaches can begin workouts two weeks earlier, on April 6.

The final process scouts and coaches will have to go through to finalize their training camp rosters is the NFL Draft on April 30, where the Buccaneers will pick first overall. The event will be held in Chicago for the first time since 1965. It had been hosted in New York every year since.
