The CBA gives the NFL the option of holding a supplemental draft each summer. For a third straight year, the league has opted to nix the event, Sam Robinson of Pro Football Rumors reports.

The NFL informed its teams no supplemental draft will take place, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. The event, which has fallen in stature compared to where it was in the 1980s and ’90s, has not been held since 2019.

In existence for players whose eligibility statuses have changed in the offseason, the supplemental draft has sent high-quality talent to the NFL. Modern-era players like Josh Gordon and current Cardinals safety Jalen Thompson have used the summer event to bound toward regular NFL work, but few such success stories exist compared to the ones that emerged decades ago.
