Programming note: Free agency primer

INDIANAPOLIS -- It's been a great week in Indy, right down to the 10-minute trip through airport security late this morning. The NFL wil be back in this city for the scouting combine a couple weeks from now, a reminder that league business runs on a year-round basis.

A few things to know:

  • Free agency overview: I'll cover the NFC West angles in depth. Brian McIntyre has laid out some of the league-wide considerations on his blog. I highly recommend checking it out.

  • Blog schedule: My plane leaves Indy around 1 p.m. ET and I've got a connection before making it into Seattle tonight. I'll post when I can and hit the ground running Tuesday. We'll have our usual chat Thursday at 1 ET. I'll be off the week of Feb. 12-19.

  • Wednesday column: Is there a subject you'd like to explore in depth this week? I am open to suggestions, as always. Something related to free agency, the salary cap or related subjects could make sense Let me know in the comments section.

Thanks in advance. I'm about to board a plane and will check back as soon as I can.
