The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy dives deeper into the schedule. According to Reedy, rookie minicamp will be held two weeks after the draft, and under the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the offseason conditioning program is starting three weeks later than usual and OTAs will be a week later.
With the Bengals offseason conditioning program starting this upcoming Monday, a couple other dates of note to pass on. Rookie minicamp will be two weeks after the draft, OTAs begin on May 22 and the mandatory minicamp is June 12-14. Under the new CBA, the offseason conditioning is starting 3 weeks later than usual, OTAs about a week later and minicamp is in the same time frame. Minicamps and OTAs are not open to the public.
This offseason, Bengals minicamps and OTAs will be held at Paul Brown Stadium instead of Georgetown University. Even though the practices will be open to the public, it is currently unclear as to how accessible the players will be compared to how things were at Georgetown.
