The NFL's twitter account confirmed Thursday the league will hold a veterans combine for free agents — possibly helping the players who may be close to making a team but don't really have an avenue to do so.
According to an NFL.com writer, the combine will take place in Arizona in March. The NFL will choose roughly 100 free agents through an application process and those chosen will work out in front of representatives from all 32 teams.
According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, who broke the news, the players chosen will "participate in position specific drills, timing and testing for all 32 teams."
