Detroit Lions - Look at upcoming NFL offseason schedule

Occasionally I'm asked if there’s a dead spot in the NFL offseason schedule.

My answer was that month between the last minicamp in June and the start of training camp in late July. Other than that it is never dull. 

Here’s a look at what is coming up.

— March 11: Deadline at 4 p.m. for teams to submit qualifying offers  to their restricted free agents.

— March 11: By 4 p.m. all teams must be under the 2014 salary cap.

— March 11: Free agency signing begins at 4 p.m.

— March 23-26: Owners meeting in Orlando.

— April 7: Teams, like the Lions, that hired a new coach may begin offseason workout programs. This is two weeks ahead of teams with returning coaches.

— April 12-13: Super Regional Combine at Ford Field.

— May 2: Deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets.

— May 8-10: NFL Draft 

No dates yet for the Lions’ minicamps.
