The NFL is less than one month away from the 2022 NFL Draft taking place in Las Vegas. The first few major waves of free agency have come and gone, leaving in their wake a drastically shifted landscape across the league. On Friday, dates for the Raiders’ offseason program were announced. As the team leads up to the draft, the Raiders will get to work on April 11 to prepare for 2022 in the now even more loaded AFC.
A two-week program known as “Phase One” will begin on April 11 and will serve as a ramp up for “Phase Two” which will see the team take the field in a non-contact setting. Phase Two will include a voluntary veteran minicamp held April 25-27, concluding only one day before the 2022 NFL Draft opens on April 28. Rookie minicamp dates have yet to be announced.
The Raiders will start Phase Three with four sets of OTAs scheduled throughout the summer: May 23-24, May 26, June 1-3, and June 13-14. The last scheduled date on the calendar for the Raiders’ offseason program is the team’s mandatory minicamp, which is scheduled for June 7-9.
The Raiders offseason to this point has been highlighted by the team’s acquisition of All-Pro WR Davante Adams, former All-Pro EDGE/DE Chandler Jones, and a massive contract extension signed by Second Team All-Pro DE Maxx Crosby.
Head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler have also been hard at work filling out the depth of the roster with signings on both sides of the ball, including re-signing RT Brandon Parker, signing a trio of LBs in Jayon Brown, Micah Kiser and Kyler Fackrell, and many more.
