Phase One of the Offseason Begins for the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday

The Chiefs are already back to work in preparation for the 2015 season


The Chiefs' nine-week offseason workout program begins on Monday with *Phase One.*

So, what exactly does that mean?

As per Article 21 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, *Phase One *consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.

Here is what the next two phases consist of:

Phase Two: 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: 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.

*Of note as the the draft draws near: Each club may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, which in 2015 may begin on May 11. During this period, no activities may be held on weekends, with the exception of one post-NFL Draft rookie minicamp, which may be conducted on either the first or second weekend following the draft. *
