    The Titans hit the field for the first of 10 organized team activities on Wednesday.

    At this point of the offseason, the handcuffs aren’t completely off, but they’ve at least been loosened.

    During the final four weeks of the offseason program, which will include OTAs and a three-day minicamp from June 18-20, the Titans will finally be able to work in 11-on-11 and 7-on-7 drills.

    And while team offense vs. team defense is finally allowed after the groups worked separately during the last three weeks, no live contact is permitted. Players will wear helmets for the first time this offseason in OTAs, though no shells or shoulder pads are permitted.

    The pads won’t come on until training camp, which is set to begin on July 25.

    Just as it was in Phase Two, all coaches will be allowed on the field over the next four weeks. Kick and return teams are allowed to practice against one another, provided there is no contact.
