The NFL Scouting Combine has come and gone. The draft is over and so are OTAs.

So what's left?

Here is the remaining upcoming schedule for the Chiefs:

Tuesday, June 16 –Mandatory Minicamp Practice

Wednesday, June 17 –Mandatory Minicamp Practice

Thursday, June 18 –Mandatory Minicamp Practice

After Thursday's practice, camp breaks, meaning that coaches, players and football staff are free for roughly a month and a half.

Training camp begins in late July and will lead up to the Chiefs' first preseason game of the season on Saturday, August 15, against the Arizona Cardinals.

Here are the remaining key offseason dates:

June 21-27:Rookie Symposium, Aurora, Ohio.

July 15: At 4:00 p.m., New York time, deadline for any club that designated a Franchise Player to sign such player to a multi-year contract or extension.  After this date, the player may sign only a one-year contract with his prior club for the 2015 season, and such contract cannot be extended until after the club's last regular season game.

Mid-July: Clubs are permitted to open preseason training camp for rookies and first-year players beginning seven days prior to the club's earliest permissible mandatory reporting date for veteran players. Veteran players (defined as a player with at least one pension- credited season) other than quarterbacks or "injured players" (as defined in CBA Article 21, Section 6) may report to a club's preseason training camp no earlier than 15 days prior to the club's first scheduled preseason game or July 15, whichever is later. Veteran quarterbacks and injured players may be required to report to the club's preseason training camp no earlier than five days immediately prior to the mandatory reporting date for all other veteran players, provided the club has already opened (or simultaneously opens) its official preseason training camp for all rookies and first-year players. A three-day acclimation period will apply to players who are on a club's roster up to and including the mandatory veteran reporting date. Players who join the roster after that date may practice (including wearing pads) and play immediately after passing a physical.
