The NFL has announced the addition of a Combine for veterans, which will take place in March shortly after free agency.

Before every NFL draft, the league holds a Combine for the aspiring NFL rookies in an effort for teams to evaluate their ability before they decide who to draft.
For the first time in the NFL, veterans will be able to participate in their own Combine. The first-ever Veteran Combine will take place on March 22 in Arizona.
In order to participate, veterans will have to pay a $400 fee and pass a physical exam. This is presumably intended to help veterans find new contracts with a team if they are not taken during the free agency period, which begins on March 10.
