NFL Lockout Watch, Day 66: NFL Player Workouts Receiving Mixed Reviews
Published May 16, 2011
READY TO GET TO WORK: Titans draftee Jake Locker said that he has “already been in the playbook he received” from the team and has been “working out and throwing to receivers on a regular basis.” In Nashville, Jim Wyatt noted Locker in the near future “plans to return” to the city to “work out with his new teammates, whether the lockout is lifted by then or not” (Nashville TENNESSEAN, 5/15). In Philadelphia, Jeff McLane noted Eagles RB LeSean McCoy, like “some of his teammates, has passed the time during the NFL lockout by training in other locales.” McCoy “spent much of the offseason in Miami,” but said that he would join QB Michael Vick and “other Eagles if informal workouts get off the ground" this week (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 5/15). Vick confirmed that the team will "meet for some drills" this week, and “about 15 players may attend” (PHILLY.com, 5/13). Packers G Josh Sitton said that the team “might get together as a players-only group, especially for the quarterbacks and receivers.” But in Milwaukee, Lori Nickel noted it is “still only in a discussion phase” (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 5/14).
