The Bears on Tuesday released a list of important offseason dates, highlighted by three minicamps and 10 OTA practices.
Because they have a new head coach in Matt Nagy, the Bears are permitted to conduct a voluntary veteran minicamp, which will be open to the media but not the public April 17-19 at Halas Hall.
The Bears will hold their rookie minicamp May 11-13 and conduct 10 OTA practices May 15-17, May 22-24 and May 29-June 1. The team's mandatory full-squad minicamp is scheduled for June 5-7.
Offensive lineman Kyle Long will be honored at the Ed Block Courage Award luncheon April 3 at Manzo's Banquets in Des Plaines.
The Bears will announce the rookie and veteran winners of the prestigious Brian Piccolo Awards April 24 and host the Bears Care Gala in the United Club at Soldier Field May 19.
The NFL Draft is slated for April 26-28.
