The NFL's annual league meetings are set to take place in Florida this week, but one notable head coach is absent.

According to reports, Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy will not be in attendance for the annual league meetings in Palm Beach, Florida.

"Mike McCarthy won’t be attending the NFL annual meeting here in Palm Beach, Fla., sources said. It is uncommon for a head coach not to attend. Instead, McCarthy continues his focus on the Cowboys’ predraft scouting process, which includes extensive travel and pro days this week," Michael Gehlken tweeted.

It's still NFL Draft season, so perhaps McCarthy has more important things to do. After all, it's been an eventful offseason for the Cowboys, who have lost some key players to trades and free agency. "As he should ! His job on the line and he wants to win … if only certain guys like Jason Garrett / Scott linehan 3.0 would’ve made a certain sacrifice and studied for 49ers we possibly wouldn’t be here rn," one fan tweeted. "That's more important than freaking meetings. Good for him," another fan added. "Too bad the GM & the front office do not share the same goal. But hey, what's another decade to lose out," another fan wrote. McCarthy was seen earlier this month at Penn State's pro day.

The 2022 NFL Draft is set to take place from April 28 through April 30.
