The NFL announced their offseason workout program dates on Thursday for each team. For the Denver Broncos, the will be holding their rookie minicamp next week, then we’ll see OTA workouts through late May and early June, before ending with their annual mandatory minicamp.
Rookie Minicamp: May 14-16
OTA Offseason Workouts: May 24-25, May 27, June 1-2, June 4, June 7-8, June 10-11
Mandatory Minicamp: June 15-17
The NFL Draft is over. It’s now the dead zone of waiting for the training camp. These are the only dates we’ll get any kind of regular Broncos news or information between now and training camp.
For reference, these are the rules for these voluntary offseason workout programs.
Phase One (April 19-May 14) has been extended from its customary two-week period to four weeks, with activities limited to strength and conditioning, virtual meetings, and physical rehabilitation only.
Phase Two (May 17-21) has been shortened from three weeks to one week. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills, “perfect play” drills, drills and plays conducted with offensive players lining up across from offensive players and defensive players lining up across from defensive players, with each group permitted to align eleven or fewer players across from eleven or fewer players. Players on one side of the ball may execute a play, but players on the opposite side of the ball may not initiate contact with, or attempt to impede the progress of, players who are running the play. All such drills must be conducted at an acceptable walkthrough pace (i.e. Pro Bowl practice).
Phase Three (May 24-June 18) remains its customary four weeks in length. Beginning in Phase Three, clubs may conduct in-person meetings and classroom instruction subject to COVID-19 testing cadence, tracking, facility access and other protocols. During Phase Three, teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or “OTAs”. No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.
