According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, the New York Jets have decided to skip their mandatory minicamp scheduled for June 13-15, citing their accelerated training camp schedule as the reason. Jets head coach Robert Saleh confirmed the news in a recent press conference, where he explained the decision by saying that the team would begin their offseason work a week earlier than most other teams to prepare for the 2023 Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 3 against the Cleveland Browns.
The #Jets have decided not to hold mandatory minicamp next week, source said, thanks in part to coming to training camp a week early due to the Hall of Fame game. Pleased with the work this spring, coach Robert Saleh sets them free a bit early.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 6, 2023
Saleh shared that their aim is to offer players an extra week to recharge their batteries for the rigorous training camp, as they’ve already put in a great offseason effort since April. With the Fourth of July also coming up, Saleh believes taking the extra week off before the Hall of Fame Game will help the players come back focused and energized.
In contrast, nearly all other NFL teams are still planning to hold their minicamps in accordance with Phase 3 of the offseason workout schedule, where teams can practice 7-on-7, 9-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills without contact.

On the Aaron Rodgers front, the Jets QB was sidelined from 11-on-11 drills during Tuesday’s practice due to tweaking his calf during an earlier OTA workout, but will be available for all other aspects of the day’s workout, including 7-on-7 and two-minute drills.
Stay tuned for more updates on the Jets as they continue with their final week of offseason training activities this week in Phase 3.
