The Oakland Raiders hit the field Monday for the final week of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) as the Silver and Black wind down the 2015 offseason program.
The offseason workout program began April 7 when new Strength and Conditioning Coach Joe Gomes and his staff implemented new equipment and a new program. With the hiring of new Head Coach Jack Del Rio, the Raiders kicked things off two weeks before teams who did not change head coaches.
Prior to the 2015 NFL Draft, the Raiders held a voluntary veteran mini-camp. After the Raiders added 10 players through the Draft and several more as undrafted free agents, the Raiders conducted a rookie mini-camp that included their new signees, as well as players looking to land a spot via tryout.
The team has been involved in three weeks of OTAs, instructional voluntary on-field workouts that emphasize teaching and technique. OTAs wrap up Thursday.
Next week, the Raiders will hold a three-day, mandatory, full-team mini-camp. Thursday, June 11, will mark the end of the 2015 offseason program and the team will have approximately six weeks off until reporting to their Napa Valley Training Complex the last week of July for the start of Raiders Training Camp 2015.
