The San Francisco 49ers begin their offseason program on Monday. As a new head coach, Kyle Shanahan could have started his offseason program as early as April 3, but decided to delay it until April 10 in order to better prepare for the arrival of his new team.

On Monday, Shanahan, 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, and select players will be available to the media at 1:15 p.m. PT.

On Wednesday, the 49ers will hold their local pro day at 1:00 p.m. PT. 49ers general manager John Lynch and participating players will be available following the workout.

Other teams kicking off their offseason programs on Monday include the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Rams.

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.

Richard Sherman, Jaquiski Tartt, K'Waun Williams, Jason Verrett, Ahkello Witherspoon, Dontae Johnson, and Jamar Taylor. Those are all San Francisco 49ers defensive backs who are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents next offseason. Emmanuel Moseley and Ken Webster are scheduled to become exclusive-rights free agents, while Marcell Harris will be a restricted free agent. It may have been more efficient to rattle off the names of those who will be under contract. The 49ers defensive backfield will likely look very different in 2021.

49ers hope to keep Kwon Alexander off injured reserve; Kyle Shanahan provides Richard Sherman update

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to get linebacker Kwon Alexander back this season. How soon that will happen remains unclear, but head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Friday that the team isn't talking injured reserve just yet. "We don't think [injured reserve is a possibility] right now," Shanahan said. "I never like to say 'minor high-ankle sprain' because high-ankle sprains are always a big issue, but it wasn't your typical one where they for sure go on IR. That's why we haven't put him on that yet, and we're hoping to keep him off." Shanahan also provided an update on Richard Sherman, who has been sidelined with a calf injury since Week 1. The 49ers had hoped to get him back this past weekend, but the cornerback had a setback last
