NFL Offseason Workout Programs Begin For Six Teams

The NFL's true offseason is incredibly short. It used to be even shorter, though I admit I don't really remember that world due to last season's lockout, but there have been some changes under the new CBA. Two years ago, offseason strength and conditioning programs would have already been underway. This year, they start in the first week of April for teams with new head coaches.

Offseason workout programs begin today for the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, all of whom hired new head coaches in the offseason. Teams with returning coaches -- that's us! -- can't start their offseason programs until the third Monday in April.

The first two weeks of offseason workouts are only with strength and conditioning coaches that have no other duties. After that two-week period, the rest of the coaching staff joins the party and non-contact drills can start. After that three-week period, teams can hold 10 days of OTAs and one mandatory veteran minicamp.

We're still a long way from training camp, but we're only about a month from players taking the practice field for football drills again.
