On Monday, the Los Angeles Rams entered Phase 2 of a three-part offseason program scheduled by the NFL and that means a week of virtual meetings, on-field drills, and rookie minicamp. Here is Phase 2, which runs this week, followed by Phase 3, which begins next Monday:

Phase 2 – One week (May 17 to May 21)

  • Virtual meetings
  • On-field drills with coaches allowed, as dictated by CBA rules – meaning no contact/teaching pace
  • Rookie Football Development Programs may begin Monday, May 17 – five days per week for a period of seven consecutive weeks; no mandatory or voluntary activities on weekends except for the team’s three-day post-draft rookie minicamp. All Rookie Football Development Programs will end Friday, July 2.
  • Rookie minicamps can be held the first or second week after the NFL Draft (the draft is scheduled to take place April 29-May 1 in Cleveland, Ohio).

Phase 3 – Four Weeks (May 24 to June 18)

  • Ten traditional organized team activities – full speed, but no contact
  • Meetings can be conducted virtually or in-person
  • Includes mandatory minicamp

COVID-19 protocols for the program include:

  • Daily testing with Mesa test
  • Staff vaccination protocols
  • Other regular season protocols in place, such as masks, distancing, etc.

There is no change in Rookie Football Development Program or post-draft Rookie minicamp.

We still have months to go before a game is played but reports of rookie development and the progress of Matthew Stafford as the new quarterback of the Rams should continue rolling in over the coming weeks.
