The NFL released the dates for all 32 teams' upcoming organized team activity (OTA) and mini-camp practices.
New England's first step will be to begin its offseason strength and conditioning program (Mon., April 21). A little more than a month later, on May 27, the team will suit up for its first OTA practice. OTAs will continue May 29-30, then again June 2-3, 5, 9-10, and 12-13. Mandatory mini-camp practices will take place June 17-19.
Unlike during training camp (which commences late July), none of these spring dates are open to the public. Media will be allowed to watch portions of practice and report on the goings-on thereafter. So, make sure to check patriots.com daily for our updates.
Before then, look for the NFL regular season and preseason schedules to be announced later this month.
