Broncos, Raiders start 2013 work

All of the AFC West is back to work.

The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders start their offseason conditioning program Monday. The Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers started April 1, as teams with new head coaches were allowed to start earlier.

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.

Broncos left tackle Ryan Clady, as expected because he has not signed his franchise tender, is not going to be at Denver’s program. Clady has said he will eventually sign, but it is not expected to be any time soon.
