It’s been two years since the end of the 2016 NFL season and you’ve probably heard the phrase “the worst part of the season.”
That’s right, the best part of any season is still to come, and with the holidays approaching and NFL free agency just a few weeks away, the league is taking some measures to help prepare for it.
The league has announced that players will be eligible to apply for the 2019 NFLPA National Pro Day on Monday, March 9, which will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The National Pro Duties Test, or NPT, is a series of physical tests that players take to prove they’re in top physical condition, including running, jumping, agility, and weightlifting.
The test is conducted by the NFL’s Performance Center and takes place at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis on March 12.
The Pro Dances are the most important physical tests, and they’ll be the first of the new season, the NFL announced Monday.
If you have a dog, the Pro Dancer test will be your only test.
Here’s how the National Prodance works:The Prodances are held in the NFL Performance Center at the University of Miami’s campus in Miami Gardens, Florida, where the NFL Network’s “Dolphins on the Road” team has been doing a great job of scouting the upcoming season.
