Fans can begin planning around the newly released offseason schedule for the Atlanta Falcons.
For those who want to keep up-to-date on minicamp and OTAs for the Atlanta Falcons—and let's face it, that's every single one of you—the dates have just been announced. These come to us directly from the NFL.
First Day: April 21
OTA Offseason Workouts: May 27-29, June 2-4, June 10-13
Mandatory Minicamp: June 17-19
So that means the offseason programs begin in earnest in under three weeks, which is a cause for celebration. It gives us something non-draft related to talk about for a short time, anyways. OTAs, also known as organized team activities, are always a useful barometer of how some players offseason programs have progressed, even if they don't tell us much else. Minicamp gives the Falcons and fans a closer look at rookies and veterans alike.
What are you looking forward to seeing from offseason workouts?
