Thanks to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, we have a nice outline of what the Broncos schedule will look like now that the lockout is over.
Tuesday: Players under contract will be allowed inside Dove Valley to go through voluntary workouts and meet with coaches. The team can start to sign rookies, draft picks and undrafted players. The team also can start making trades and start negotiating (but not signing) with unrestricted free agents.
Wednesday: All Broncos players required to report to Dove Valley for the start of training camp. Players will take their physicals, and coach John Fox will hold his first full-squad meeting.
Thursday: The first practice of the Fox era is tentatively scheduled to run from 8:50-11:15 a.m.. That session will be open to the public. Meanwhile, the team will now be allowed to cut players.
Friday: Teams can sign unrestricted free agents. Contracts will all be on hold until the CBA is officially ratified.
Thursday, Aug. 4: The atest day the 2011 league year can begin, though it might start sooner depending on how quickly the CBA is ratified by players. By this date, all teams must be under the $120.375 million salary cap.
Thursday, Aug. 11: The Broncos play their first preseason game at Dallas. – Lindsay Jones (Denver Post)
Head on out to Dove Valley on Thursday for the Broncos first official practice that is open to the public.
