The NFL announced the official offseason start dates for their 32 teams this upcoming season with several organizations looking to dial back a bit in how they prepare their roster for the 17-game road.

The New York Jets are no exception.

Gang Green's first day of offseason workouts will be April 15, with OTAs beginning on May 20. The full list of the schedule is shown below:

First Day: April 15

OTA Offseason Workouts: May 20, 21, 23, 28, 29, 31, June 3, 4, 6, and 7.

Mandatory Minicamp: June 11-13

As per the NFL's collective bargaining agreement (CBA), offseason programs can be broken down into multiple phases. Only team meetings, strength and conditioning, and rehabilitation can occur during the program's first two weeks during Phase 1. Phase 2 consists of individual and team drills.

Phase 3 begins OTA and minicamp workouts.

The Jets will be looking to improve off their 7-10 season in 2023 and end a 13-year playoff drought. New York has had eight straight years of finishing below .500, but will have a new look team hitting the field with free agent acquisitions like Tyron Smith , John Simpson and Mike Williams joining the franchise.

Williams, and a few other Jets may not be fully participating in workouts as they recover from season-ending injuries last year, but with quarterback Aaron Rodgers expected to return and be a vocal presence during the sessions, there will be plenty for New York to work on over the next month.
