(chiefs.com) The Kansas City Chiefs begin phase 3 of their offseason program Tuesday. Over the next three weeks, the Kansas City Chiefs will hold 10 OTA practices (offseason team activity). While there’s no contact allowed during these workouts, the offense can go up against the defense in 11-on-11, 9-on-7, and 7-on-7 drills. That’s different than what they’ve been doing in Phase Two, which consists of the offense and defense working separately. The OTAs lead up to the Mandatory Mini Camp that will be held June 13th, 14th and 15th.
