Updated 2013 NFL Offseason Schedule


 

The first minicamp session has concluded for the Cincinnati Bengals, but there’s still a ways to go to get to September when the 2013 season opens, and here is the dates for the rest of the NFL offseason schedule:

 

May 20-23: Organized Team Activities (OTAs)

Phase one of the offseason workout program, the first two weeks being a maximum of three days. Coaches permitted but no live contact allowed.

May 28-31: Organized Team Activities (OTAs) 

Phase two of the offseason workout program, the first two weeks being a maximum of three days. Coaches permitted but no live contact allowed.

June 3-6: Organized Team Activities (OTAs) 

Phase three of the offseason workout program, the third week allows a maximum of four practices. Coaches permitted but no live contact allowed.

June 11-13: Mandatory Minicamp 

Phase four of the offseason workout program, the fourth week allows three practices. Coaches permitted but no live contact allowed.

July 15: Deadline for Long-Term Deal with Franchised Player

NFL teams may negotiate with the franchised player until July 15th. If the two sides are able to work out a long-term deal after the tag is applied and before the July 15th deadline, the tag will be tossed aside and the player will play under the new deal, but if there’s no agreement reached, the player has to play under the one-year franchise deal.

July 25-August 15: Training Camp

The start of the 2013 NFL season truly begins with training camp. The Bengals later open the preseason during a Thursday night football game at the Atlanta Falcons , and it will be nationally televised on ESPN.
