Giants offseason workout program begins

Posted Apr 21, 2014

The Giants 2014 offseason workout program begins as players return to the facility

The 2014 Giants start to take shape as players report to the facility for the first time this season as part of the voluntary offseason workout program.

As outlined by the NFL, the regimen is divided into three phases as teams physically and mentally prepare for the start of the season.

Below is a glimpse into the life of a Giants player in the coming weeks and months:

PHASE 1 - Team Strength & Conditioning
April 21 - May 4

Limited to:

  • Strength and conditioning

  • Physical rehabilitation

PHASE 2 - Offense/Defense
May 5 - May 26

On-field workouts may include:

  • Individual player instruction and drills

  • Team practice conducted on a “separates” basis (offense/defense)

  • No live contact or team offense vs. team defense

PHASE 3 - Organized Team Activities
May 28-30, June 2-3, June 5, June 9-10,June 12-13

Teams may conduct:

  • Total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or “OTAs”

  • No live contact is permitted

  • 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted

MANDATORY MINICAMP
June 17-19

Article 22 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement stipulates:

  • Clubs may hold one mandatory minicamp for veteran players

  • Minicamp must occur during Phase Three of the offseason program.

  • Head coaches hired after the end of the 2013 season are also entitled to conduct an additional voluntary veteran minicamp

Now that you have a better idea of what will be going on inside the walls and on the fields of the Quest Diagnostics Training Center, the Giants.com staff answered a few questions pertaining to this period and the 2014 Giants:

What are you most looking forward to about the players being back on Monday?

  • Michael Eisen: I’m most looking forward to seeing Chris Snee back working with his teammates and taking a leadership role on the new-look offensive line. If the Giants are going to take a big step forward this year, the line must be significantly improved. And Snee is the key to that happening.

  • John Schmeelk: I’m looking forward to getting some idea of what Ben McAdoo’s new offense is going to incorporate, even if it is just getting to hear the players talk about it. We may not get any meaningful details until training camp, and perhaps not even until exhibition games. I have a feeling the Giants coaches will try to keep as much of the new offense under wraps so they can catch the league by surprise in Week 1 of the regular season.

  • Dan Salomone: I’m anxious to see not the players who are coming back, but the ones who are reporting to the Quest Diagnostics Training Center for the first time. This team has new blood in a lot of key areas due to its active role in free agency, and I’m curious to see how guys like Geoff Schwartz, Rashad Jennings, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, etc., start to gel with their new teammates. It has been an interesting offseason so far, and it’s only April.

What can you learn during the offseason conditioning program?

  • Michael Eisen: It won’t happen right away, but the most important thing we’ll learn from the program this year is how well the offensive players are digesting the system Ben McAdoo is installing. The program will end in June with a full-squad minicamp and that will give us an idea of how much progress they’ve made.

  • John Schmeelk: I think the most important thing you get out of the offseason conditioning program is health and a sense of which players put in the work in the offseason. Some guys come in looking great, but others look like they haven’t lifted a weight since the last season ended. Considering the chip on this team’s shoulder, I would expect the vast majority of players being in the former category, and being very excited to bounce back and put together a winning season.

  • Dan Salomone: It’s the first time they’re all together, so it’s the beginning of forming a new identity for the year. Due to the nature of the NFL, personnel turnover is inevitable every season and the dynamics shift. Are they workmanlike? Are they loose? Are they angry about missing the postseason? Are they optimistic about the way they finished last year? Every team needs an identity.
