The Chicago Bears will open the third and final phase of NFL's voluntary offseason program today at Halas Hall with the first of 10 OTA (organize team activity) workouts. The 10 practices will be spread out over a period of four weeks.
This will be the first offseason training program in which both helmets and coaches on the field are permitted. There's still plenty the Bears aren't allowed to work on, though. One-on-one drills in which an offensive player goes against a defensive player are prohibited. Charles Tillman and the rest of the Bears defensive backs will have to wait until training camp to take on Brandon Marshall.
