Chiefs Offseason Program Starts On Monday

New, comments

One of the great things about the NFL -- especially for bloggers like all of us -- is that the action never really stops. The games end in late January/early February and within three weeks we're at the NFL Combine, pre-draft visits are happening, teams are attending pro days....and then offseason programs begin.

Yes, the Chiefs offseason program will start tomorrow.

It's not "real" football as there are no pads but it's the first time since January that the team will put on helmets and step onto the field together.

It's basically a workout so there won't be any earth-shattering news.

It's also voluntary so players don't have to show up. And the word voluntary should be used lightly.  Coaches aren't allowed to make them mandatory or say anything that would indicate they're mandatory but it happens all the time (and the NFL never does anything about it).

If you're on the roster bubble, which many of these Chiefs are, then you're going to be at the start of the program.

We'll have some more stories on the offseason program in the morning including a look back at the start of the program last year. Things were much, much different at that point in time.
