NFL Offseason Program Rules


Voluntary offseason workout programs are intended to provide training, teaching and physical conditioning for players.

As per Article 21 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each club's official, voluntary nine-week offseason program is conducted in three phases:

Phase One consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.

Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills as well as team practice conducted on a "separates" basis. No live contact or team offense versus team defense drills are permitted.

Phase Three consists of the next four weeks of the program. 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.

Article 22 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement stipulates that clubs may hold one mandatory minicamp for veteran players. This minicamp must occur during Phase Three of the offseason program.

New head coaches are entitled to conduct an additional voluntary veteran minicamp. Any voluntary minicamp for veteran players must be conducted prior to the NFL Draft (April 27-29), but no earlier than week three of the club's offseason workout program and after at least one week of the two weeks of Phase One activities that the clubs may hold pursuant to Article 21.

Each club may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, which in 2017 may begin on May 15. During this period, no activities may be held on weekends, with the exception of one post-NFL Draft rookie minicamp, which may be conducted on either the first or second weekend following the draft.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson shrugs off 10-touchdown season, looks ahead to offseason of work

Even if he doesn't seem overly impressed with what he accomplished in his third NFL season, Jeff Wilson certainly made his case throughout the year that he belongs as one of the top two running backs for the San Francisco 49ers in the foreseeable future. Wilson capped his season with a touchdown run and a touchdown catch in the 49ers' 26-23 loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, giving him a total of ten on the season (seven rushing, three receiving). Those are impressive numbers, but that accomplishment was overshadowed in his mind by what the team wasn't able to do in 2020. "That's not a big a deal. I guess it's nice, but we didn't win," Wilson said after the loss to the Seahawks. "We didn't have a winning season because of it, so that's pretty much
