Teams with new coaches -- Andy Reid takes over in Kansas City and Mike McCoy is the new boss in San Diego -- can start their offseason programs early.
Offseason workout programs for teams with new coaches can run for nine weeks within a 12-week period. The other teams have a 10-week window with which to get in nine weeks. The programs cannot exceed four days a week and must be conducted Monday through Friday. Offseason workout programs have three phases with different rules for each. They are based on strength and conditioning, individual instruction and organized team activities.
Monday, in Kansas City and in San Diego, at least, the 2013 season is beginning.
