The Jacksonville Jaguars have announced their offseason workouts, OTA practices, and training camp schedules for the 2016 offseason. It's almost here!

According to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the offseason starts in less than three weeks.

O'Halloran outlines the rest of the dates are below:

Phase One (starts April 18): The first two weeks of the off-season, limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.

Phase Two: The next three weeks -- on-field workouts may include individual player instruction and team drills. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills permitted.

Phase Three: The final four weeks – teams can conduct 10 organized team activity workouts (OTA practices). 7-on-7, 9-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills are permitted, but no contact. The wrap-up is a mandatory mini-camp, the only mandatory part of the off-season program.

OTA practices: These practices are voluntary, but the Jaguars have had regular perfect attendance the last three off-seasons with the exception of Chris Clemons in 2014 and 2015.

Monday, May 23; Tuesday, May 24; Thursday, May 26; Tuesday, May 31; Thursday, June 2; Friday, June 3; Monday, June 6, Tuesday, June 7; Thursday, June 9; and Friday, June 10.

Mandatory mini-camp: These practices are mandatory.

Tuesday, June 14; Wednesday, June 15; and Thursday, June 16.

*Teams can also hold a rookie development program for a period of seven weeks, beginning no earlier than May 9.
