The Kansas City Chiefs will officially be back at it on April 18 as the start of their offseason program. The team will hold workouts with the team in multiple phases this offseason in April, May and June. The first phase is mostly conditioning with the second and third phases getting the players on the field with more football work. However, the offseason is non-contact until training camp so there is no tackling.
First day: April 18
OTAs: May 24-26, May 31, June 1-2, June 7-10
Mandatory minicamp: June 14-16
As of now, Eric Berry has not signed his franchise tender which means he is not under contract. Berry could skip all of this before signing his tender. That'll be something we watch this offseason.
Here are the phases of the offseason:
- 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 permitted.
