Keep up with the latest rumors around the NFL.
The NFL draft is behind us and while teams are getting acquainted with the new draft picks and tundrafted free agents, there is still some business to attend to before mandatory minicamps start in a few months.
The next big date in the NFL calendar is May 3. That's the deadline for teams to exercise fifth-year options on first-round selections from the 2016 NFL Draft.
Those who do not receive the option will become unrestricted free agents following the 2019 season.
