Players and coaches, eager to capitalize on last year's success, began official off season activities today at Seahawks headquarters in Renton.

Things began with a team meeting this morning, followed by the players taking a series of functional movement tests to help determine just what it is individual players need to work on as the offseason progresses.

During Phase 1, the players will work four times a week for two weeks with strength and conditioning coaches. In Phase 2, which begins April 29 and runs through May 17, head coach Pete Carroll and his staff will get involved on a limited basis for on-field drills.

There  is a rookie minicamp May 10-12.

Phase 3, which begins May 20, will include 10 organized team activity workouts and conclude with a mandatory minicamp June 11-13.
