Arizona Cardinals offseason NFL schedule, key dates after 2024 NFL Draft


The Arizona Cardinals had a busy offseason. They have re-signed, signed in free agency or traded a total of 19 players through the end of April. Additionally, 12 players were selected in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Head coach Jonathan Gannon is preparing for his second season as team leader. The Cardinals finished the 2023 season under him at 4-13, so there's plenty of room for improvement. The team should have benefit quarterback Kyler Murray at the start of the 2024 season. He missed the first nine games of last season while recovering from a torn ACL that required surgery at the end of the 2022 season.

The Cardinals typically begin camp the last week of July at State Farm Stadium. The dates should be known by mid-May.

When will the Cardinals cut their roster by 53 players?

This typically occurs in the last two weeks of August when teams reduce from 90 to 53 players following training camp practices and preseason games.
