The free-agent rush is long past. The 2021 NFL Draft is in the books.
Now the real work begins for the New England Patriots.
The NFL on Thursday released each team’s spring practice schedule, including dates for organized team activities (OTAs), rookie minicamp, and mandatory team minicamp.
Then, OTAs will take place May 24-25, May 27, June 1, June 3-4, June 7-8, and June 10-11.
Several Patriots players have already said they will skip OTAs, which are voluntary, for health and safety reasons due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Players will be expected at the team’s mandatory minicamp from June 15-17.
Official dates for summer training camp, which will begin in July, have yet to be announced.
