Bears offseason schedule set

The NFL released the offseason calendars Thursday for all its teams, and the Chicago Bears are just 18 days away from the start of their offseason conditioning program.

The first day of the club's program is April 22, but organized team activities won't begin until May 27.

Here's how it breaks down:

OTA workouts: May 27-28, May 30, June 2-3, June 9-12.

Mandatory minicamp: June 17-19.

None of the workouts listed above will be open to the public. The club hasn't yet announced the start of training camp in Bourbonnais, Ill., but that typically takes place near the end of July at Olivet Nazarene University.
