The NFL announced the offseason dates for all 32 teams on Monday as some teams began preparing for the next season. That includes the Packers.
Green Bay will start their offseason program on April 8th. They could have started it on Monday, but instead will wait a week. Teams with new head coaches are allowed to start their program on April 1st, but must take a week break. Instead of having that time off new head coach Matt LaFleur’s squad will get to work next week.
Another change with a new head coach is an additional voluntary minicamp that must be held before the NFL Draft. Green Bay will hold their voluntary veteran minicamp from April 23rd until the 25th.
The Packers will also have their standard optional team activities, and mandatory minicamp this spring as well. There will also be a rookie minicamp, but the dates for those practices will not be announced until after the draft.
Below are the dates for the Packers offseason program:
First Day: April 8
Voluntary Minicamp: April 23-25
OTA Offseason Workouts: May 20-21, May 23, May 28-29, May 31, June 3-6
Mandatory Minicamp: June 11-13
