San Francisco 49ers players will kick off organized team activities (OTAs) — the team's third phase of the offseason schedule — on Monday. That's when non-contact drills pitting the offense against the defense are first allowed and will consist of three practices a week.

OTAs are scheduled for the following days: May 20-21, May 23, May 28-29, May 31, June 3-4, June 6

The 49ers hope to have rehabbing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo throwing to his teammates during OTAs. He will be eight months removed from his season-ending ACL injury in late September.

One practice from each of the three weeks will be open to the media, with the 49ers making members of the coaching staff available to reporters on those days. The media schedule is below.

Tuesday, May 21

  • Noon practice
  • Approximately 2 pm: Head coach Kyle Shanahan
  • Select players will be made available after Shanahan speaks

Wednesday, May 29

  • Noon practice

  • Select players will be made available

Tuesday, June 4
