Dates for OTAs, minicamp set

By Field Yates

The Patriots have officially set the dates for their organized team activities (OTAs) and mandatory minicamp.

The OTAs, which are not required for players to participate in but typically draw nearly the entire roster, are scheduled for the following dates:
May 20-21
May 23
May 28-30
June 3-4
June 6-7


The mandatory minicamp will be held June 11-13.

OTAs and minicamps afford the team an opportunity to work on the field with its new personnel for the first time and install a chunk of the playbook. The on-field sessions are not open to the public for viewing.
