Late spring and early summer is the slow part of the NFL offseason, as fans have nothing more than minor updates from OTAs to keep them occupied.
But sometimes, time ends up going by faster than people anticipate, and the 2023 regular season is now just 100 days away from starting.

There will be a number of intriguing storylines to watch across the pro football landscape once Week 1 commences in early September.
Perhaps the biggest is future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ move to the New York Jets, a team that already had a nice young core and simply needed a good signal-caller to become competitive.
Will the crew they now have be enough to get them to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1968 season?
The AFC as a whole will be extremely hard-fought, and it starts with the defending world champion Kansas City Chiefs.
They lost wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster this offseason, but then again, they jettisoned Tyreek Hill last year and still won it all.
Fans will also be watching to see if the Buffalo Bills or Cincinnati Bengals will finally get over the hump and win the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
In the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles lost star defensive tackle Javon Hargrave and Pro Bowl running back Miles Sanders, yet they’re still favored to get back to the big game.
Hargrave is now a member of the San Francisco 49ers, the team Philly defeated in the NFC Championship Game, and the Niners are hoping he will put them over the top and deliver them their sixth world title.NEXT: Todd Bowles Gives Update On Baker Mayfield, Kyle Trask Competition
