According to a report from Kim Jones, New York Jets players appear to be all in on Robert Saleh’s offseason activities.

A report from Kim Jones of NFL Network has revealed that “more than 80 players” showed up to Florham Park on Monday to partake in Phase Two of the New York Jets‘ offseason workout program. It appears to speak volumes about the players’ belief in new head coach Robert Saleh, who is overseeing his first offseason at the helm of the Jets.

Phase Two of offseason training has been shortened from three weeks to one (through May 21) this year, with non-contact drills among positional groups taking center stage. These activities must be staged at “an acceptable walkthrough pace”, likening the preferred tempo to practices prior to the Pro Bowl.

“On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills, “perfect play” drills, drills and plays conducted with offensive players lining up across from offensive players and defensive players lining up across from defensive players, with each group permitted to align eleven or fewer players across from eleven or fewer players,” the NFL’s guidelines declare. “Players on one side of the ball may execute a play, but players on the opposite side of the ball may not initiate contact with, or attempt to impede the progress of, players who are running the play.”

Team drills, i.e. 11-on-11’s, will not be staged until the third and final part, more commonly referred to as OTAs (organized team activities). Phase Three at Atlantic Health Jets Training Facility on One Jets Drive begins on a league-wide scale on May 24, with the Jets’ first OTA slated for that day. The team’s three-day mandatory minicamp is scheduled for June 15.
