The New York Jets' rookie class of 2012 will take to the practice field for the team's rookie minicamp this week, starting on May 4. The rookie minicamp runs for three days until May 6.
The entire team holds a three-day minicamp from June 5-7.
Minicamps are punctuated with organized team activities, which run through the early part of June, before wrapping up to give players some semblance of an offseason over the summer. Time allotted for offseason work is limited by the collective bargaining agreement the NFL and the NFL Players Union reached in 2011.
The dates for the Jets' OTAs are as follows:
May 22-24, May 29-31, June 4, and June 6-7.
Training camp starts at the end of July. New York starts the regular season on Sunday, Sep. 9, with a division game against the Buffalo Bills.
