49ers offseason workout program: Team enters phase two

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE

We take a look at the 49ers' upcoming offseason workout program as it enters phase two.

The 49ers' offseason is taking another step forward today, as the team moves into Phase Two of the offseason workout program. Over the last two weeks, the team has been doing strength and conditioning work, as well as rehab for players dealing with injuries. Today marked the start of Phase Two and will run for the next three weeks. The CBA describes it as follows:

(ii) Phase Two. Phase Two shall consist of the next three weeks of the Club's offseason workout program. Subject to the additional rules set forth in Section 5 of this Article, during Phase Two all coaches shall be allowed on the field. On-field wor­kouts may include individual player instruction and drills, as well as "perfect play" drills (e.g., offense or defense only, but not offense vs. defense), or special teams drills on a "separates" basis (e.g.., kicking team or return team only, but not kicking team vs. return team). No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted. No offense vs. defense drills are permitted (e.g.., no one-on-one offensive linemen vs. defensive linemen pass rush or pass protection drills, no wide receivers vs. defensive backs bump­ and-run drills, and no one-on-one special teams drills involving both offense and defense are permitted.) Players cannot wear helmets during Phase Two.

To sum it up, all coaches are allowed on the field. The last two weeks only allowed for strength and conditioning coaches on the field. The team can run offensive and defensive drills, but they cannot run offense vs. defense, nor can the players wear helmets. That will start up after the three weeks of this phase.

Speaking of the workout program, there are some useful dates to know:

Rookie Minicamp: May 10-12
OTA Offseason Workouts
