The NFL today released the offseason workout program dates for each of the League’s 32 teams, including rookie minicamp dates for the 11 drafted Seahawks and nine more that agreed to terms as undrafted rookie free agents.

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. The Seahawks started this phase back on April 15 and recently concluded on April 26.

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 vs. team defense drills are permitted. The Seahawks started this phase today.

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 permissible. For the Seahawks, this phase is set to start on May 20 and run through June 14.

Here’s a look at the team’s minicamp and OTA workout dates:

Rookie Minicamp: May 10-12

OTA Offseason Workouts: May 20-21, May 23, May 28-29, May 31, June 3-6

Mandatory Minicamp: June 11-13

These dates are tentative and subject to change.
