Has the Texans announced their off-season schedule yet?
April is right around the corner.
I've included the NFL's 2014 offseason schedule (starting with today), which was released by the league.
March 22 NFL Regional Combine, Doctors Hospital Training Facility at Nova Southeastern University, Davie, Florida.
March 22-23 NFL Regional Combine, Virginia Mason Athletic Center, Renton, Washington.
March 23-26 Annual Meeting, Orlando, Florida.

April 7 Clubs that hired a new head coach after the end of the 2013 regular season may begin offseason workout programs.
April 12-13 Super Regional Combine, Ford Field, Detroit, Michigan.
April 21 Clubs with returning head coaches may begin offseason workout programs.
May 2 Deadline for Restricted Free Agents to sign Offer Sheets.
May 7 Deadline for Prior Club to exercise Right of First Refusal to Restricted Free Agents.
May 8-10 2014 NFL Draft, New York City, New York.
May 19-21 NFL Spring League Meeting, Atlanta, Georgia.
June 2 Deadline for Prior Club to send "June 1 Tender" to its unsigned Unrestricted Free Agents. If the player has not signed a Player Contract with a Club by July 22 or the first scheduled day of the first NFL training camp, whichever is later, he may negotiate or sign a Player Contract from that date until the Tuesday following the 10th weekend of the regular season, at 4:00 p.m., New York time, only with his Prior Club.
June 2 Deadline for Prior Club to send "June 1 Tender" to its unsigned Restricted Free Agents who received a Qualifying Offer for a Right of First Refusal Only in order for such player to be subject to the CBA's "June 15 Tender" provision.
June 16 Deadline for club to withdraw Qualifying Offer to Restricted Free Agents and still retain exclusive negotiating rights by substituting "June 15 Tender" of one-year contract at 110 percent of the player's prior-year Paragraph 5 Salary (with all other terms of his prior-year contract carried forward unchanged).
June 22-28 Rookie Symposium, Aurora, Ohio.
July 15 At 4:00 p.m., New York time, deadline for any Club that designated a Franchise Player to sign such player to a multi-year contract or extension. After this date, the player may sign only a one-year contract with his Prior Club for the 2014 season, and such contract cannot be extended until after the Club's last regular season game.
Mid-July Clubs are permitted to open preseason training camp for Rookies and First-Year Players beginning seven days prior to the club's earliest permissible mandatory reporting date for veteran players.
Veteran players (defined as a player with at least one pension-credited season) other than quarterbacks or "injured players" (as defined in CBA Article 21, Section 6) may report to a club's preseason training camp no earlier than 15 days prior to the club's first scheduled preseason game or July 15, whichever is later.
Veteran quarterbacks and injured players may be required to report to the club's preseason training camp no earlier than five days immediately prior to the mandatory reporting date for all other veteran players, provided the club has already opened (or simultaneously opens) its official preseason training camp for all Rookies and First-Year players.
A three-day acclimation period will apply to players who are on a club's roster up to and including the mandatory veteran reporting date. Players who join the roster after that date may practice (including wearing pads) and play immediately after passing a physical.
July 22 Signing Period ends for Unrestricted Free Agents to whom a "June 1 Tender" was made by Prior Club. After this date and until 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the Tuesday following the 10th weekend of the regular season, Prior Club has exclusive negotiating rights. (* or the first scheduled day of the first NFL training camp, whichever is later.)
July 22 Signing Period ends for Transition Players with outstanding tenders. After this date and until 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the Tuesday following the 10th weekend of the regular season, Prior Club has exclusive negotiating rights.

Off-season program: April 7
Voluntary minicamp: May 6-8
Organized Team Activities(OTAs): May 27-29, June 2-3, June 5, June 9-10, June 12-13
Mandatory minicamp: June 17-19
May 8th is the draft. so how is Voluntary Mini camp on 6-8. Is it without the coaches ?
Also, Off-season program means off the field stuff ? classroom and Gym ?
This might help.
As it stands, we have one pick on the 8th. Their board will be set. I don't see much need for anyone outside of OB, and that shouldn't take long.
The coaches have been practicing running mock practices at the facilities, so everything should go smoothly.
Hey that's the deal the players asked for.

Good to know the team hasn't given up on 2014. Rebuilding or not, doesn't mean we have to be losing. We're not playing the best of the best in 2014, our core group should be able to win quite a few games this season.
Winning is a habit & whatever new guys we bring in, I'd like for them to start picking up that habit right away.
