It won't be long before it's back to the old grind for the Pittsburgh Steelers. After a busy offseason, the 2023 roster is going to look quite different for Pittsburgh, and fans are excited to see the new-look Steelers in action.

It's going to be a while until any meaningful football is played in 2023, but for those looking to follow along intently with the Steelers this offseason, here are Pittsburgh's upcoming rookie minicamp, organized team activities (OTAs), and mandatory minicamp dates, according to the Football Operations website.

Steelers offseason schedule 2023

Start Date: April 17

The start date is a bit different for each NFL team, but this will mark the beginning of the first phase of offseason programs. Over the course of a few weeks, Steelers will hold workouts, rehab, and meetings. There will be no on-field work during this phase.

Steelers rookie minicamp: TBD

At this time, no specific date has been released for the start of Steelers rookie minicamp. We will update this information as it becomes available to the public.

Steelers organized team activities (OTAs): May 23-25, May 30-June 1, June 5-8

Organized team activities are voluntary, but they are an essential part of the NFL offseason program. A total of ten days are spread across three weeks in which the team offers light practices for players. Despite its voluntary status, most players -- including Steelers team captains -- typically show up for this.

Steelers mandatory minicamp: June 13-15

Mandatory minicamp marks the last phase of the offseason program before players show up for Steelers training camp in July. Just like its name, it's mandatory for all players to show up, and those who don't could be fined. This three-day period is meant to gather the entire team and wrap up everything they've been working on throughout the offseason as well as get them prepared for a busy summer of training camp.
