The offseason schedule has been unveiled.

Strangely, we are closer to the start of offseason workouts than we are the NFL Draft. The year goes by quickly, and time in the NFL flows most strangely.

That said, this is good news, as I’ve had enough offseason that I’m more than ready to see actual football again. The Falcons will kick off offseason workouts on April 16th, which is just two weeks away, but we’ll need to wait until May 21 to see all the incoming rookies in OTAs, and longer still to see everybody show up for mandatory minicamp.

Still, these dates are heartening, because they tell us we are within striking distance of some football-related activities worth talking about, and not just the roster construction discussion we have off and on for six months out of the year. Woohoo, friends.
