The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced the bulk of their offseason schedule, releasing the dates for their Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and three-day mandatory minicamp.
In a press release issued by the team, those events will take place on the following dates:
The team’s offseason program officially starts in three weeks, kicking off April 17th. The first on-field OTA session runs May 23rd through the 25th with another session May 30th through June 1st and June 5th through June 8th. Those are all technically voluntary practices though attendance for those under contract is near 100%. Pittsburgh’s mandatory minicamp takes place June 13th through the 15th.
The NFL and the CBA outline specific rules and restrictions for OTA sessions and what players and coaches can do. The Steelers did not announce their rookie minicamp date, the first on-field event for the team since the end of the regular season, though it typically takes place two weeks after the draft. That should place it May 12th through the 14th.
For the veterans, their on-field work will begin May 23rd. GM Omar Khan has been a busy man this offseason adding plenty of new faces to the team, ones we’ll get to see starting in May.
The team’s training camp dates won’t be released until the summer but it will begin sometime in late July.
