Cardinals among NFL squads opening OTAs Monday

Offseason workouts kick into a higher gear for many NFL teams today.

Sixteen squads begin the organized team activity portion of the offseason:

OTAs remain voluntary. Players cannot be fined for skipping workouts. Teams are allowed 10 days of OTAs.

The beginning of OTAs represents the start of Phase Three of offseason workouts and signifies a change in work structure teams can conduct. Whereas previous workouts were mostly relegated to individual workouts, OTAs allow for team drills with coaching instruction. No live contact is allowed, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.
