NFL Offseason Schedule 2023: Calendar for NFL Draft, OTAs, Training Camp, and More

The 2023 NFL offseason schedule is here. The NFL never sleeps, and the league has been consumed with free agency and draft preparations since the Super Bowl concluded in early February.

With the Scouting Combine, free agency, and the NFL Draft in the rearview mirror, it’s time to look ahead at the rest of the NFL offseason. Here are the most important 2023 NFL offseason dates, from workout programs through to the preseason.

2023 NFL Offseason Schedule

Offseason Workout Programs

NFL teams’ offseason workout schedule depends on the status of their head coach. Clubs that hired a new head coach after the 2022 campaign can start their program two weeks earlier than teams that retained their head coach. Here is when each team can begin its offseason workouts.

April 10
Carolina Panthers, Indianapolis Colts

April 11
Arizona Cardinals, Denver Broncos, Houston Texans

April 17
Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, Las Vegas Raiders, Los Angeles Chargers, Los Angeles Rams, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tennessee Titans, Washington Commanders

April 24
Philadelphia Eagles

NFL Draft

April 27-29
The 2023 NFL Draft will took place in Kansas City, Missouri, the home of the reigning Super Bowl champions. The Carolina Panthers had the No. 1 overall pick after acquiring the selection from the Chicago Bears in a March trade. They took Alabama QB Bryce Young with that pick.

Rookie Minicamps

The NFL rookie minicamp will be held on the two weekends following the NFL Draft. Teams can choose which weekend, but each team can only host one minicamp.

NFL Schedule Release

The date of the NFL schedule release is set to be May 11. Last year’s schedule was released on May 12, so the NFL is remaining consistent by releasing the schedule in the second week of May.

OTAs

NFL teams can hold organized team activities (OTAs) for a total of 10 days during May and June. Some clubs host these workouts in two blocks, while others spread it over as many as five or six different sessions.

This year, OTAs will begin the week of May 22 and conclude as late as June 15 for some teams.

NFL Supplemental Draft and Franchise Tag Extension Deadline

The NFL has skipped the supplemental draft in each of the last three years, and it’s unclear whether the league will have it return in 2023. The last supplemental draft (2019) occurred in late July, and the same timeframe will likely be used if the NFL decides to hold one again.

Teams will have until July 17 to reach long-term agreements with players who have been assigned the franchise tag. If no extension can be worked out by that date, the player will have to spend the 2023 campaign on the franchise tag.

Training Camp and NFL Preseason

Teams’ training camp start dates are tied to their preseason start date. The first game of the 2023 NFL preseason will be the Hall of Fame game on Thursday, Aug. 3. That contest will feature the New York Jets facing off with the Cleveland Browns in Canton, Ohio. The rest of the NFL will likely start their exhibition season within the following week to 10 days.

NFL veterans can report to training no earlier than 15 days before their club’s first preseason game. Rookies can be asked to report a week before those veteran players.
