Then, following each team's fourth and final preseason game on Thursday, Sept. 3, clubs must trim their rosters from 75 players to a maximum of 53 players by 1 p.m. PT on Saturday, Sept. 5. Looking further down the road, the NFL's trade deadline for 2015 is set for 1 p.m. PT on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

As far as 2016 is concerned, the new League year and free-agency period will begin at 1 p.m. PT on Tuesday, March 15. The 2016 NFL Draft will take place from April 28-30, but the site is still to be determined. This past year's NFL Draft was held in Chicago, Ill., which marked the first time since 1964 that the annual event has been held outside of New York City.
