The NFL released its Offseason Workout Program calendar on Thursday.
The Giants will start their voluntary offseason workout program on Apr. 15. Here are the key dates:
OTA workouts: May 22-23, May 29-31 and June 3-7
Giants mandatory minicamp: June 11-13
The voluntary offseason workout programs provide training, teaching and physical conditioning for players. The nine-week offseason program is divided up in three phases.
The first two weeks are activities designed for strength, conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.
The next three weeks consist of on-field workouts that can include individual instruction and drills and team practice "conducted on a 'separates' basis." There is no live contact and no offense-against-defense drills.
Teams can conduct a total of 10 days of OTAs over the next four weeks of the program. Live contact is not allowed but teams can conduct 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills.
Teams are allowed to hold a rookie development program for seven weeks.
