NFL OTAs 2024: Start Date and Schedule for NFL Offseason Program

    When will each NFL team launch their organized team activities? Here's the complete schedule for when OTAs start up for each franchise.

    NFL franchises welcomed new faces to the football field, conducting rookie minicamps in early-to-mid May. The next major team event involves organized team activities (OTAs), and rookies and veterans alike typically show up (injuries and contract negotiations notwithstanding).

    OTAs are often considered the “main event” of every team’s offseason program, as near-perfect attendance is likely for every roster. Here’s a closer look at when OTAs take place for all 32 teams, with the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings being the caboose (both teams’ OTAs end on June 13).

    Are OTAs Mandatory?

    OTAs are still considered voluntary for all NFL players. While some teams make certain parts of the workouts mandatory, those are reserved during minicamps, not the OTA part of the offseason.

    This period can still see some players involved in contract disputes, rehabbing from injury, or taking time off to handle a personal matter. Some players have used the OTA period to take paternity leave, while others have worked out with trainers on the side if they’re still recovering from a season-ending injury.

    Lastly, every NFL team cannot pressure players during non-mandatory workouts such as OTAs. If a club official threatens a player’s roster status by being a no-show during OTAs, it would be against the rules stated in the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).
