Interviews and coverage

Head coaches and executives will hold press conferences during the combine. They will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday and members of 29 of the league’s 32 teams have so far been announced by the NFL. The three teams who are not scheduled to appear are the New England Patriots, the New Orleans Saints and the Buffalo Bills — the first two were also not part of last year’s media availability sessions.

The press conferences, just like the on-field drills, will be broadcast live on NFL Network. The league’s network will broadcast workouts and press conferences live throughout the entire week:

Thursday, February 27, 4-11 pm ET: Tight ends, quarterbacks and wide receivers take the field for the first day of on-field workouts.
