For more than three-quarters of the NFL’s clubs, the work week begins anew on Tuesday.

Twenty-five clubs begin or resume organized team activities (OTAs) on Tuesday, with the Bears, Bengals, Browns, Buccaneers, Cardinals, Chargers, Chiefs, Colts, Cowboys, Dolphins, Eagles, Falcons, 49ers, Jaguars, Jets, Lions, Panthers, Patriots, Raiders, Redskins, Saints, Seahawks, Steelers, Texans and Titans the teams getting back to work one day after Memorial Day.

Six other teams — the Bills, Broncos, Giants, Packers, Ravens and Vikings — begin or resume OTAs on Wednesday.

The Rams are the only team not holding OTAs this week. They begin organized team activities on Tuesday, June 3.

OTAs are practices in which no live contact can occur. While 11-on-11 practice work is allowed, one-on-one drills are not allowed. Players cannot work for longer than six hours, and practices are limited to two hours, with coaches able to provide instruction. OTAs are voluntary.

  1. I miss the old days when restrictions were minimal and players couldn’t wait to hit someone. To only have two hours of actual practice time on the field has got to be annoying to a Head Coach who wants to teach as much as possible. I thank my teams front office for getting a coach who knows how to get the most out of his limited time available. If you ever had a chance to see the Eagles practice with Chip Kelly you know what I mean. For instance, he’s got like Five QB’s throwing simultaneously to Five different receivers running different routes. It’s truly a site to behold. Not to mention you rarely see a player standing around doing nothing. Call him what you want, just don’t call him inefficient.

  2. Hey Chicago fans, how does it feel to get smoked by the Lions every year? Prepare for another sweep!!

  3. ^ sounds like someone’s bitter about getting swept by the lions every year.

  4. “OTAs are voluntary”

    They are about as voluntary as breathing if you want to see any significant playing time, or even make the team unless you are a superstar in the prime of your career.

  5. Quarterbacks getting their receivers in tune with them is probably the best thing about OTAs because there is no hitting the offensive and defensive lineman can’t get any reps.It’s like flag football.

  6. Lee is a really good player. I feel bad for him. These kids work hard at a very difficult occupation. I wish him a speedy recovery. Id rather beat The Cowboys when they are at full strength.
