The NFL has announced the offseason schedule for all 32 NFL Teams. Here are the Jacksonville Jaguars’ offseason workout dates:
- First Day: April 2
- OTA Offseason Workouts: May 13-15, May 20-21, May 23, June 4-7
- Voluntary Minicamp: April 16-18
- Mandatory Minicamp: June 11-13
There are three phases, per NFL rules. Here is how the NFL defines them:
As per Article 21 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each club’s official, voluntary nine-week offseason program is conducted in three phases:
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.
I know that head coach Gus Bradley is excited to get back out on the field and I’m excited to see the Jaguars get back into workouts and see what talent is on the roster for this coming season!
