NFL offseason schedule: Organized Team Activities announced for each franchise

Rich Schultz

The NFL released the official schedule for offseason workouts for all 32 teams. Find out when your team will be allowed to start preparing for next season.

The NFL has released the official schedule for offseason workouts and OTAs on Thursday. According to the league's official Collective Bargaining Agreement, each team may conduct a voluntary nine-week offseason workout program intended to provide "training, teaching, and physical conditioning for players."

This workout program must be conducted in three phases, with each team having specific dates in which they can conduct each phase:

Phase One consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.

Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills as well as team practice conducted on a "separates" basis. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted.

Phase Three consists of the next four weeks of the program. Teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or "OTAs". No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permissible.

An additional caveat of the CBA is that head coaches hired after the 2012 season are allowed to conduct an additional voluntary minicamp for veterans. The teams that have hired new coaches this year include the Cardinals, Bills, Bears, Browns, Jaguars, Chiefs, Eagles, and Chargers. So there could be a lot of disgruntled veterans who feel that might need to be at a voluntary workout to meet their new head coach.

In news for non-veterans, each team may also hold a seven-week rookie football development program, which may begin on May 13.

Here is the full offseason workout schedule for all 32 NFL teams. Organizations with new head coaches may start as soon as April 1:
