Teams that hired new head coaches this offseason are allowed to start their offseason programs on Monday and two of the teams in that position opted to go that route.

Bills coach Sean McDermott and Chargers coach Anthony Lynn will kick off Phase One of their first round of offseason work since getting their jobs. The initial phase, which is voluntary, consists of two weeks of strength and conditioning work with 90 minutes of non-contact, on-field work with strength and conditioning coaches permitted. Players can also choose to put in two hours a day of work in the weight room.

The next phase of work, which lasts three weeks, calls for the same breakdown of time with all coaches allowed to be on the field.

The 49ers, Rams and Broncos are set to start work next Monday with the Jaguars getting underway on April 17 after the NFLPA challenged their right to get a jump on other teams because they made interim head coach Doug Marrone their permanent choice for the job.

  1. McDermott looks like he’s ready to get his team going. I am glad the Pegula’s decided to roll with him over the other names that were floating around this offseason. He seems like a no bs type of coach that lays it all down in front of you and gives you the opportunity to prove yourself… if you deem not worthy, then goodbye. You can already sense that “Favorites” will not suede his decision to put the better man on the field. Look: he already went through the Bills roster and cut a few of those favorites… Aaron Williams, Corey Graham, Robert Woods, Stephon Gilmore, Marquise Goodwin. Maybe this is Buffalo’s knight in shining armor?

  2. Are the Chargers fighting for LA in San Diego? Or Costa Mesa or Carson. The truth is almtheyhave done in LA is eat Pinks hotdogs. Pathetic losers

  3. “Cut a few favorites”? While I understand what you are trying to say, this is false. Woods, Gilmore and Goodwin were FA’s that weren’t retained due to cap space, Willimas career was in doubt and Graham wasn’t worth his salary. While I believe McD is a great coach, he doesn’t deserve any credit, or criticisms really, for those moves. They were strictly business decisions and had very little to do with what you suggest it did. Maybe if they send Dareus packing, but that’s about it.

    The Bills are looking to repeat as Off Season Champions.

  5. Coach McDermott is a no-nonsense guy. You’ll see a quicker pace in training camp and in practices, too. BTW, Philly Brown is an upgrade over Goodwin or Woods at WR.
