Kinda. NFL teams with a new head coach can begin their offseason workout programs today, April 1. Those teams include the Browns, Bucs, and Dolphins. The Broncos will begin tomorrow (April 2) and the Packers, Jets, Bengals, and Cardinals will start next week. These workouts will consist of mostly strength and conditioning, as well as injury rehab -- no one should be hitting each other yet, or bitching about throwing. Every other team can start their workouts in two weeks.
One of the biggest teams to watch during this time will be the Cleveland Browns -- new head coach Freddie Kitchens should be good for a good quote or two, maybe about somebody named Odell Beckham, who should be looking to make a good first impression on his first day with his new team.
Another team to keep an eye on is Arizona -- and not just because Kliff Kingsbury is nice to look at. Do they keep future Hall of Famer Josh Rosen around, or are they preparing to draft Kyler Murray? You won't be able to tell anything based on if Rosen shows up for workouts, of course, and I doubt anyone will let a quote slip, but I've got my binoculars and my watchful eyes on and peeled.
Also, these workouts are completely voluntary (which means players are not required to show up, for those with a thin vocab), so please keep your hot takes to yourselves about how a ten-year veteran sucks now because he didn't show up to lift weights. Thanks!
