NFL rookies, like so many others, are in a tough spot this offseason.
They haven’t even signed contracts, but many want to practice with their new teammates despite lacking any protection if an injury should happen.
Browns second round wide receiver Greg Little got advice from his agent Andy Ross to focus mostly on weight training and film work when he practices with his teammates next week. Little isn’t listening.
“It’s Andy’s job to give me advice, but at the end of the day, it’s still my decision and I will probably choose to take part in everything,” Little told the Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “I think my teammates will take notice of that. They don’t want to injure themselves either, but they’re out there doing the drills.”
Thankfully no players have been seriously hurt in the player-only practices. Let’s hope that keeps up, and a labor agreement comes before an injury occurs.
