The New York Jets will begin their 2022 OTAs on May 23

Through the NFL345 Twitter account (the league’s official communications account), the NFL announced important dates for each team’s offseason workout programs in the 2022 offseason.

The Jets’ voluntary offseason workout program will begin on April 18.

Per the NFL, each team’s nine-week offseason program includes three phases.

Phase One begins on the first day (April 18 for New York). It is a two-week period “with activities limited to meetings, strength and conditioning, and physical rehabilitation only.”

The next three weeks make up Phase Two, which is described as follows:

“On-field workouts may include individual or group instruction and drills, as well as ‘perfect play drills,’ and drills and plays with offensive players lining up across from offensive players and defensive players lining up across from defensive players, conducted at a walk through pace. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted.”

New York will begin Phase Two on May 2.

The final four weeks of the program make up Phase Three. During this period, teams may conduct 10 days of organized team practice activities, better known as “OTAs”. According to the league, “no live contact is permitted” during OTAs, but “7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.”

The Jets will begin their 2022 OTAs on May 23, and their final practice of OTAs will be on June 10. Their 10 permitted practices will take place on the following dates:

  • Monday-Tuesday, May 23-24
  • Thursday, May 26
  • Tuesday-Wednesday, May 31-June 1
  • Friday, June 3
  • Tuesday-Friday, June 7-10

Teams are permitted to hold one mandatory minicamp for veteran players, which must occur during Phase Three. The Jets will begin their 2022 three-day mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, June 14, which will run through Thursday, June 16.
