NFLPA explores the possibility of a drastically revamped offseason program

The NFLPA is currently “working to finalize a proposal to overhaul the offseason starting as soon as 2025,” with voluntary on-field work gone and a longer training camp according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The new schedule would do away with OTAs and hasve players showing up sometime between mid-June and early July.  Pro Football predicted the new schedule way back in February, stating “the existing series of phases and OTAs and minicamps that are followed by six weeks of down time could be swapped for four weeks before training camp. That would give players a lot more time off, and it would potentially make them just as ready for camp, since they’d go straight from the pre-training camp workouts into camp.”

Of course the union can make whatever proposal they want but it"s the league front office and the owners who will ultimately decide if and when changes to the offseason will be implemented.  And it is unlikely they will do wiat the union wants without some kind of concession.  This discussion could be a prelude to adding an 18th regular season game as favored by the owners.
