Locked out of team facilities for the duration of the, uh, lockout, many players around the NFL are planning to meet with teammates, in order to prepare for the possibility of a 2011 season.
Last week, Dallas Cowboys’ backup quarterback Stephen McGee told an Amarillo newspaper that starting quarterback Tony Romo and tight end Jason Witten would lead the team’s workouts, and cornerback Terence Newman is on record as well, saying he was interested in participating in a similar move.
If not for the lockout, the team’s voluntary offseason workout program would have begun over a week ago. As it is, the team’s player-led workouts appear to be set for next week at an undisclosed location. Linebacker Keith Brooking recently said that he would return to Dallas this weekend and stay for the remainder of the offseason.
"Been a productive offseason considering the circumstances," linebacker Keith Brooking said, per ESPN Dallas. "Can't wait to get back with my teammates. I'm actually going back to [Dallas] this weekend for the remainder of the offseason."
