The LA Rams have released 2020 dates for team activities. Be sure to mark your calendars for these events

The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine has come and gone. The attention of NFL Fans now turns towards free agency and the 2020 NFL Draft. Of course, after that, the LA Rams will begin their 2020 offseason programs.  Today, those dates have been released.

Of course, we’ve talked at length about the importance of the 2020 offseason for the LA Rams’ success. Of course, some very important events do not have a formal date assigned. The most important of which is the upcoming NFL players vote upon the proposed Collective Bargaining Agreement.

If the new CBA is approved, all NFL teams will have some pretty noticeable changes in store.  The players’ share of NFL revenue will increase, which will add dollars to the salary cap of all 32 NFL teams.  Since the Rams have had no issue spending up to their cap, this will be a positive development. Here are some important dates on a 2020 timeline to keep track of this year.
