The NFL offseason is about to kick it into high gear. The league announced the offseason workout dates for all 32 teams on Thursday. 

The seven teams that hired a new head coach this year -- the Browns, Vikings, Buccaneers, Titans, Redskins, Lions and Texans -- will get to hold their first practice on April 7. All other teams will hold their first practice on April 21 or 22. 

Here are the offseason guidelines from the NFL: 

  • Phase One consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only. 
  • 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. 
  • 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 permitted.

With all of that in mind, here are the offseason workout dates for each team.
