The Kansas City Chiefs jumped into Phase 2 of the offseason program on Monday, May 2.

The team kicked off the first phase of the offseason workout program back on April 18. After two weeks or so of voluntary strength and conditioning training, Phase 2 is officially beginning in Kansas City. This phase will go on for the next three weeks, leading to voluntary Organized Team Activities (OTAs) at the end of the month.

Here is what Phase 2 entails, via the NFL’s offseason workout press release:

“Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program. On-field workouts may include individual or group instruction and drills, as well as ‘perfect play drills,’ and drills and plays with offensive players lining up across from offensive players and defensive players lining up across from defensive players, conducted at a walk through pace. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted.”

The Chiefs are also permitted to hold their rookie minicamp during Phase 2. It can be held either on the weekend of May 6-8 or May 15-17. It sounds like the team has scheduled their rookie minicamp for the first weekend of May, but they’ve yet to confirm. Rookies get a little bit of extra time with the coaching staff during this period, helping them catch up on what they’ve missed and acclimate to life in the NFL.

Several players reported to team facilities for the first time this offseason, including some of those who were down in Texas with Patrick Mahomes, like WR Josh Gordon. He reported that it was a great first day.
