The NFL has released minicamp and OTA offseason workout schedules for all teams and the summer fun starts next weekend for the Saints.

According to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Saints can hold one post-NFL Draft rookie minicamp, which may be conducted on either the first or second weekend following the draft. The Saints will hold theirs next weekend from May 13 to 15. Participants will include all of the Saints shiny new draft picks, undrafted free agent signings, and minicamp invites.

Following that, the Saints will be allowed to conduct a total of 10 days of OTA offseason workouts. During this period, no activities may be held on weekends. Those will be held on May 24-26, May 31, June 1-2, and June 6-9. There will be no live contact permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.

And after all that is a mandatory minicamp for veteran players that the Saints will hold June 14-16. Then it's a long break until the start of training camp.

Here's the breakdown:

OTA Offseason Workouts:         May 24-26, May 31, June 1-2, June 6-9

Mandatory Minicamp:                June 14-16

Rookie Minicamp:                     May 13-15
