The NFL announced dates for this spring's off-season team activities as the path from the draft toward training camp becomes clearer. The Patriots will still lock in and confirm their own official dates later this spring, as reporters can expect to get media access to a handful of the sessions, including the full team minicamp, slated for early June.
Last year's minicamp provided an early glimpse at the Mac Jones-Cam Newton quarterback competition that would later unfold at training camp.
First Day: April 18
OTA Offseason Workouts: May 23-24, May 26, June 1-3, June 13-14, June 16-17

Players will begin the off-season workout program on April 18, with OTAs beginning at the end of May.
