Starting in the final days of May, NFL teams will have nine weeks to cram as much information as they can into the heads of their new players—both rookies and free agents.

Rules for these workouts are strict (you can check them out here, courtesy of the NFLPA), and contact is forbidden.

Here's all you need to know about your favorite team's OTA schedule.
