Draft season is in full gear but there will be lots of actions the rest of the offseason. The Jacksonville Jaguars, for their part, have announced the dates of their offseason activities, via a press release by the NFL.

The Jaguars will begin Phase One of their offseason activities on April 15. Per the league's press release, they and every other team will be limited to holding meetings, strength and condition, and physical rehabilitation for two weeks during that stage. Other clubs will start on April 8 while the Los Angeles Chargers, the Atlanta Falcons, and the Washington Commanders will begin theirs on April 2.

Phase Two encompasses the next three weeks of the program. Teams can hold individual or group instructions and drills. Offensive players can line up across from other offensive players while defensive players can line up across defensive players at a walkthrough pace.

The next four weeks of the program are Phase Three. Teams can hold up to 10 days of organized team activities (OTA). Live contact is not permitted, but players offensive and defense players can now line up against each other on 7-on-7, 9-on-9, and 11-on-11 drills. Teams that violate non-contact rules can incur fines and lose days of practice.

Back in 2021, the Jags incurred a $300,000 fine for violations of contact during offseason workouts. The team was fined $200,000 and then-head coach Urban Meyer $100,000. On top of that, they lost two OTA sessions the following year as part of the punishment.
