With all the talk focusing on upgrading the Phins through the coming draft and free agency, I thought I would post this info on key dates for 2010. It will help shed some light on when certain decisions will need to be made by the Miami brain trust. I have to admit that I got this from a Patriots website. And did edit the parts out that referenced the Patriots. http://www.patriotsdaily.com/2010/01/20 ... son-dates/
It’s a long offseason ahead, so here is as complete a list as we could come up with for events between now and training camp, 2010. As we discover more dates, we’ll add them in, and as some dates get clearer (dates for rookie camp, mini camp, etc) we’ll update those as well.
