For the rookie classes of two teams, the offseason has ended. Today marks the beginning of a week and a half of report dates before the veterans join camps in just over a week. The rookies for the Buffalo Bills and Las Vegas Raiders report to training camp.
First-year players arrive at training camps early to provide men who have never experienced the procedure before an extra few days of orientation. The Raiders’ veterans will report on July 20 in preparation for their participation in the Hall of Fame Game. On July 23, Bills veterans are scheduled to report at St. John Fisher College. Before the majority of workouts start the next week, the majority of players report to camps on July 26.
The start of the NFL offseason is signaled by the first rookies reporting to training camps. Since everyone is anticipating the new season, it also indicates that it is getting closer.
