The Giants’ offseason program begins today at TPC. It is strictly “voluntary” as per the latest CBA….Voluntary offseason workout programs are intended to provide training, teaching and physical conditioning for players.
The Giants OTAs are scheduled to be held May 22-23, May 29-31 and June 3-7.
Article 22 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement stipulates that clubs may hold one mandatory minicamp for veteran players. This minicamp, noted below, must occur during Phase Three of the offseason program. Head coaches hired after the end of the 2012 season are also entitled to conduct an additional voluntary veteran minicamp.
The Giants mandatory minicamp will be held June 11-13.
Each club may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, which in 2013 may begin on May 13. 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. The dates of the post-draft rookie minicamps will be circulated at a later date.
