Giants begin workouts at New Jersey high school

The end of the draft usually means the start of Organized Team Activities en masse around the league.

While the lockout prevents OTAs or minicamps happening, it does appear that a lot of player-led workouts are picking up around the league. The Dolphins have been at it a while.  We told you about 37 Saints showing up to Tulane Tuesday for a workout.   The Jets are practicing in California.

Eli Manning and the Giants, meanwhile, started conducting passing drills at Hoboken High School, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. Manning, who was hoping to keep the workout a secret, says that he’s “retired from interviews until the lockout is over.”

The workouts included tight end Kevin Boss, Sage Roenfels, receiver Hakeem Nicks, and running back D.J. Ware.

Any worry from players that they would be “helping” owners by holding practices has dissipated, as have concerns about player liability if injured.

Lockout or not, we aren’t going to return to the way things were in the 60′s and 70′s when players were routinely out of shape when training camp started.

    I’m sure many… if not most… teams are doing something like this.

    Congrats, Ggreg. You managed to write up a story related to the lockout that wasn’t gushing with so much sanctimony that it conjured up an image of you typing through tears.

    Football practice? Manning must suck at golf.

    Eli Manning picked the site so he could get some school work done at the same time!

    Send big Al back to the 60s or 70s, he’d fit right in.

    Who is Sage “ROENFELS”….?

    Rosenthal’s broken spellcheck strikes again, I guess. What, proofreading?

    Please address him as:
    Eli Manning, Super Bowl Champion/Super Bowl MVP.

    Thank you.

    As soon as I saw the mangled name, I immediately thought “3G wrote this”.
