Four offseason programs get underway this week

Free agency and the league meetings have been the focus for the last couple of weeks, but we’ll move into another stage of the offseason this week.

Teams that hired a new head coach this year are permitted to start their offseason programs on April 1 and half of the teams that made coaching changes will be getting underway this week. The Browns, Buccaneers and Dolphins are set to resume work on Monday while the Broncos set April 2 as their start date. Attendance at this stage of the offseason is voluntary.

The Jets, Cardinals, Bengals and Packers will wait a week, which allows them to run their offseason program without a break. The other teams must take a week off at some point before the end of the offseason. The other 24 teams can start their offseason workouts on April 15.

Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens and some players are expected to speak to reporters on Monday. Should wide receiver Odell Beckham be among them, it’s a safe bet that plenty of reporters will be waiting to see how dangerous he feels on his first day of work with his new team.

  1. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the Browns do this coming season – expecting a big turnaround after the moves they have made. This is going to be a very interesting division given the new Browns, the Raven’s new scheme with Jackson, and the Steeler’s exodus.

  2. Beckham will embarrass and/or polarize his new teammates,Browns fans,and ownership quicker than farts leave a fan factory. Get ready to renegotiate. Not worth the relative little that petulant diva WR’s contribute towards rings.

  3. Browns on paper should be world beaters, atleast division winners. Bucs still have Jamis ? Dolphins have Fitzmagic just don’t say their tanking! Can’t believe football is back,

  4. Browns on paper should be world beaters, atleast division winners.

    Guaranteed you are 100% correct.

    Beckham is a team cancer Once the Browns get it and it metastsizes, chemotherapy and or radical invasive surgery will offer the only chance to survive.

  6. Browns fans don’t believe that OBJ is a cancer. Now that he’s in Cleveland, they believe that new teammates Jarvis and Baker, and new coaches in Kitchens and the WR coach, absolve all of that. They are living a honeymoon of everything is perfect. I’m one of the very few that HATED the acquisition of the cancer. I think it will ruin team comradery and continuity before it wins any Super Bowls. But, I can’t get any of the masses off of their honeymoon of the perfect marriage.

    Gonna be a painful fall in C-Town when he destroys the team chemistry.

  7. It’s really funny that some people think the browns are going to instantly reverse decades of abject failure and complete ineptitude from the top down because of baker mayfield, the dolphins’ former wr2, and a clown diva who has never won a playoff game.

  8. Will be interested in reading what kind practice environment new Dolphin coach Flores establishes. Will there be any of the Pats, no nonsense “do your job” emphasis?
    I’m really hoping he can get more out of this team than Gase was able to do.

    Actually it’s called logic.

    This team currently has the NFL record holder for most touchdown passes in a single season for a rookie throwing to one receiver who has lead the league in catches and one who was near top of the league in receiving yards and both achieved those accomplishments with sub par QB’s on their previous teams. Logic says one of the two will probably get a major boost in stats.

    Then they have one running back who lead the league in yards and one who currently holds the team record for most rushing yards for a rookie.

    Then on defense on top of the 3 pro bowlers they already had they traded for another one in Olivier Vernon.

    Combine that with a possible defense heavy draft so yeah. Makes sense people think this team coming of 7.5 wins with less talent and questionable coaching will probably do better with more talent.

  10. Now that OBJ has left for Cleveland, the Giants can prove that Eli Manning is still their best option at quarterback.

    Just kidding, the Giants are going to make the Browns look like an All-Madden team.
