The NFL announced some key dates for the end of 2014 and into the 2015 league year, so without decorating the lede with pleasantries, I'll just get right into it.
The most key dates to keep in mind are:
-- Super Bowl XLIX: February 1st, 2015
-- The NFL Combine: February 17th - 23rd, 2015
-- The start of NFL Free Agency: March 10th, 2015
-- The NFL Draft: April 30th - May 2nd, 2015
