Chiefs get back to work on April 21

The Kansas City Chiefs have set the dates for their offseason program. The conditioning phase will begin April 21.

Practice begins May 24 with the start of a three-day rookie camp. Full-squad practices are May 27-29, June 3-5 and June 10-13. Minicamp will be June 17-19. The Chiefs generally don't open any of their offseason practices to the public and have no plans to do so this year.

Dates for training camp at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph have not been set. But the first full-squad camp practice can be held no more than 15 days prior to the first preseason game. That also has not been set, but look for that game to be played about Aug. 8, meaning the Chiefs would open camp about July 24.
