Nine NFL teams open rookie minicamps this weekend

Some rookies are getting right to work this weekend.

Eight NFL teams open their rookie minicamps Friday, May 4, with another joining on Saturday. The three-day session runs through Sunday, May 6.

The majority of NFL teams that are running an optional rookie camp will hold their workouts May 11-13.

The nine teams beginning workouts include several of the top rookies from last week's draft, including Baker Mayfield (Cleveland), Lamar Jackson (Baltimore), and Sam Darnold (New York).

The three days of work allow the first-year players to get a jump-start on learning the playbook and preparing for their immersion in the NFL.

Per the Collective Bargaining Agreement, each team may hold one post-draft Rookie Minicamp on either the first or second weekend following the NFL draft, with players participating in club activities for a maximum of 10 hours per day.
