NFL/NFLPA agree to key dates for the 2023 NFL season
By Bret Stuter
The LA Rams are in full swing to prepare for the 2022 NFL season. But that is not to say that the organization, and the fans that follow the Rams, should not keep one eye on the 2023 calendar. After all, life comes at you fast, and we are already nearly halfway to the turn of a new year.
And for some of us, scheduling future events requires as much lead time as possible. Whether coordinating the even to spend time with our friends, scheduling time off from work, or even making travel plans to attend NFL events, the more time you have to plan, the better your planning may go.
NFL Insider Tom Pelissero Tweeted the latest dates that will officially be recorded on the NFL league year calendar. They are:
To begin the official dates, the 2023 NFL league year will begin on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, at 1:00 pm PT. So placing all of this into some loose chronological order:
Feb 21-Mar 7, 2023 NFL team window to apply either a franchise or a transition tag on a player
Mar 13-15, 2023 NFL Negotiating period – teams are permitted to negotiate new contracts
with players or their representatives.
March 15, 2023 New 2023 league year begins
March 15, 2023 Free Agent signing period begins
Apr 27-29, 2023 2023 NFL Draft will take place in Kansas City, Missouri.
The LA Rams are currently looking at the 2023 NFL with a fairly sizable ensemble of draft picks, projected to be up to 10 picks as of mid-June 2022. Of course, these are the LA Rams, so nobody should assume anything about their future draft picks this far out.
Even as the team aims for the 2022 NFL season, the LA Rams will be keeping an eye on the future. Mark your calendars.
