Dates for Packers offseason workouts announced

The Eagles announced the dates for their 2017 offseason workout program on Monday, and those itching for football won't have to wait much longer.

This part of the offseason is voluntary, with player attendance under Chuck Pagano hovering over 90 percent in past years.

Activities are limited to strength and conditioning and rehabilitation for the first two weeks.

There are three phases to these offseason workouts, as delineated by Articles 21 and 22 of the 2011 Collective Bargaining Agreement between the league and the NFL Player's Association.

Phase Three is when teams can conduct a total of 10 days of organized team activities.

During phase three, teams can take part in 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills, but there is no contact allowed.

The Dolphins will hold a rookie minicamp the week after the draft, May 5-6, followed by Organized Team Activities May 23-25, May 30-June 1 and June 5-8. All other coaches may not attend or observe in any way. Each are recovering from broken legs they got in December. This phase lasts four weeks, and teams are also allowed to hold a mandatory veteran minicamp during this time. Helmets are allowed, but practicing in pads is not. There can be no live contact and the offense and defense cannot practice or drill together.

Here's a look at the schedule. That will conclude OTAs until the team returns for the start of training camp in late July.

The team will also have a rookie orientation from May 11-13. In between, Jones will hold his Hall of Fame party on August 4.

The first series of on-the-field practices will be conducted from May 23-25.

All of which means this is what a tentative, unofficial camp schedule in Oxnard could look like this year.
