Football is almost back.

The NFL announced the offseason workout program dates for each team and it won't be long before the Patriots get started.

Here are the key dates on the Patriots' calendar.

Offseason workout program: April 15OTAs: May 20-21, May 23, May 29-30, June 10-11Mandatory minicamp: June 4-6

It should be noted everything is voluntary with the exception of mandatory minicamp.

One storyline will likely be Tom Brady, as he missed all voluntary workouts last year, and it's assumed he will once again do the same in order to spend more time with his family.
