Monday marks the beginning of a road for 25 NFL teams, all of which hope that journey ends in Santa Clara, California, with a Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl 50.
The offseason workout schedule -- non-mandatory -- kicks off for those 25 teams that did not change head coaches this year (those seven teams got a head start in the previous weeks).
The teams whose doors will open today include:
Green Bay Packers
Kansas City Chiefs
New England Patriots
New Orleans Saints
New York Giants
St. Louis Rams
San Diego Chargers
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This begins Phase 1 of the official, voluntary nine-week offseason program. Per the CBA, in the first stage activities are limited to strength and condition and physical rehabilitation only.
