Steelers Offseason Program - Phase One begins Tuesday

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Phase One is the least noteworthy of all the Phases, but it's one step closer to bringing the final 2014 Steelers roster together.

Let's get ready to run, condition and rehabilitate.

Phase One of the Steelers' offseason program begins today in Pittsburgh, a two-week period of time in which players are permitted to partake in "activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only."

So a mix of all the things fans assume most players are doing on their own. Perhaps it's a time to draw some new information regarding players with offseason surgery and things of that nature. They won't be suiting up, that's for sure, but it won't be long until they're at least permitted to take some coaching.

According to the NFL's press release explaining the offseason program:

Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills as well as team practice conducted on a "separates" basis. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted.

Phase Three consists of the next four weeks of the program. Teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or "OTAs". No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.

The Steelers' OTAs are May 27-29, June 3-5 and June 9-12. The mandatory team minicamp is June 17-19. The start of training camp this year hasn't been announced but typically, players report the last Friday in July, which is the 25th this year.
