Phase three of the NFL offseason for the Kansas City Chiefs resumes Tuesday with day four of organized team activities, or more commonly known as OTAs. We discussed what takes place during the three weeks of OTAs here.

The Chiefs held their first open OTA media session last Thursday, May 23. After watching the full workout (takeaways here), media members had the opportunity to speak with head coach Andy Reid, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, wide receiver Sammy Watkins, linebacker Darron Lee and defensive end Frank Clark.
The next open practice and media session is this Thursday, May 30. Mahomes and Chiefs assistant coaches are expected to be available after practice. This will be our first chance at asking defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo some questions since his initial conference call after signing on with Kansas City—back then, the Chiefs were in roster evaluation mode, and Dee Ford and Justin Houston were still on the team. The media will also speak to some members of Spagnuolo’s staff for the very first time.
The practice schedule
Week 1: May 21 - May 23
- Week 2: May 28 - May 30
- Week 3: June 4 - June 7
Mandatory Minicamp (10 hours a day) takes place after OTAs from June 11 - June 13.
