The Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday opened a voluntary workout program for their players as spelled out in the terms of the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The two-week program includes activities limited to strength, conditioning and physical rehabilitation only, according to Bob Labriola, of Steelers Digest.
Later in the spring, three weeks can be dedicated to on-field workouts that do not include live contact drills. Organized team activities (OTA’s) will be held three days at a time during a three-week period beginning May 21. The Steelers will hold a mandatory three-day minicamp from June 11 – 13.
In the meantime, the Steelers, like all other NFL teams, continue to prepare for the three-day NFL draft process which begins on Thursday, April 25.
