It’s the only portion of the offseason that is mandatory for players, who are required to either participate in practice or rehab their injuries at the team facility. Bill Belichick can modify his practices to include more team drills or individual work, but the general framework of a minicamp practice is the same for all 32 NFL teams. Minicamps are considered part of “Phase III” of the offseason program and similar to the organized team activity practices (which are voluntary). Not permitted during practices are any live contact (blocking, tackling, pass rushing, bump-and-run) or one-on-one offense vs. defense drills (offensive linemen vs. defensive linemen, bump-and-run receiver vs. cornerback drills, and one-on-one... Minicamps cannot be longer than three days of practice plus one day for physical examinations. The physicals must be done on Monday (with no practice or workouts that day), with practices Tuesday to Thursday and a mandatory off day Friday. Many teams often cancel the Thursday practice as a way to reward players for an offseason of hard work. Teams can actually hold “two-a-days” during minicamps, but the second practice can only be a walk-through.

Also place the exhausted coffee maker in the closet.

He said that the new OS X would bring "a whole bunch of new capabilities to the Macintosh, and today we're bring native apps to the Watch with a new version of the Watch OS which gives the developers even more time to create even greater apps for... Then he added, "I'm going to dispense with my normal updates other than to tell you everything's going great," and introduced Senior VP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi to talk about the next version of OS X, the operating system for Macs,... The successor to Yosemite boasts a new Mission Control interface and the ability to do a "split view" that snaps windows to either the right or left, making it easier to see two side-by-side. The new Safari will address an annoying problem that comes up more and more as sites add auto-play video and video ads: Hearing audio and not knowing where it's coming from.
