The Chicago Bears are gearing up for the start of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) this week at Halas Hall, where veterans and rookies will come together for the first time ahead of veteran minicamp.

We’re through the first waves of the offseason with free agency and the NFL draft in the books. And while things are about to quiet down a bit, there’s still plenty of action ahead for the rest of this offseason and heading into training camp.

Here’s a look at the Bears’ upcoming offseason schedule:

The Bears will play three preseason games beginning in mid-August. They’ll play just one at Soldier Field given they have an extra home game in the regular season this year.
