The Detroit Lions and New England Patriots are the latest teams to say they will not formally report to their respective team facilities next week to begin voluntary offseason workouts.

The Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Tuesday announced their intentions to skip the workouts, while the Lions and "some of us" from the Patriots joined them in making the decision on Wednesday.

Offseason programs are scheduled to begin April 19 leaguewide, at which point daily testing for players and staff will commence.
