Michael Sam (But No Tim Tebow) At NFL Veterans Combine

Cardinals, league will host showcase for out-of-work players in Tempe

The Cardinals' Tempe facility will host the first NFL Veterans combine on March 22.


Michael Sam will be there. Tim Tebow will not.

And some former Cardinals – defensive tackle Everrette Thompson, linebacker Thomas Keiser, running back Michael Bush and linebacker Vic So'oto – will also be making an appearance at the place they once called home.

The first NFL veteran combine -- designed to showcase players who have already left college and many who have already played in the NFL to teams in an effort to be signed as free agents -- will take place at the Cardinals' Tempe facility March 22.

It is not open to the public.

"Combines have long provided draft eligible players with the forum needed to showcase their skills to NFL teams," NFL Director of Football Development Matt Birk said. "The NFL Veteran Combine will give veteran free agents a similar opportunity to work out in front of club personnel in a streamlined process."

The NFL Veteran Combine will serve to consolidate individual veteran free agent tryouts to one location, streamlining the process for NFL teams and participating players. Invited free agents will have the opportunity to perform position-specific and timed drills in front of scouts from all 32 NFL clubs.

NFL Network will air a one-hour special on the Veteran Combine at 5 p.m. Arizona time March 22.

The Cardinals' facility will also host the NFL's Super Regional Combine -- invited players from five previous regional combines of draft-eligible men not invited to the NFL's main Scouting combine -- on Saturday.
