Teams with new head coaches are permitted an extra offseason minicamp to get acquainted and the Bears’ on-field introduction to Marc Trestman April 16-18, or about a week before the NFL draft.
The Bears announced their offseason schedule Friday, beginning with an April 2 start to the strength and conditioning program. Coaches aren’t permitted to be involved with players for those conditioning sessions, but the new staff will be receiving information from them.
The draft choices and undrafted free agents will come in for the rookie minicamp from May 10-12, followed by a first set of organized team activities (OTA’s).
OTA’s will end June 6, with a mandatory veteran’s minicamp the following week, June 11-13.
