The Tennessee Titans have Phase 1 of the offseason and a voluntary minicamp behind them.

Starting Monday they enter Phase 2 of the offseason.

It’s three weeks long and is described like this in the collective bargaining agreement between the league and the players.
“…[D]uring Phase Two all coaches shall be allowed on the field. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills, as well as ‘perfect play’ drills (e.g., offense or defense only, but not offense vs. defense), or special teams drills on a ‘separates’ basis (e.g .. , kicking team or return team only, but not kicking team vs. return team). No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted. No offense vs. defense drills are permitted (e.g .. , no one-on-one offensive linemen vs. defensive linemen pass rush or pass protection drills, no wide receivers vs. defensive backs bump­and-run drills, and no one-on-one special teams drills involving both offense and defense are permitted.) Players cannot wear helmets during Phase Two.”

As last week’s minicamp wrapped up, coach Ken Whisenhunt said the Titans would benefit a good deal from the next stage.

“Where it’s going to be good for us is defensively, you get a chance to work on some of the technique and matchup things that you’re trying to do on defense and offensively, some of the individual routes and the techniques of those routes,” he said.

“We threw a lot at them from combinations, coverages, and there are all kinds of adjustments that come with each one of those, so we get a chance to break those down and work on them individually.”
