NFL Lockout Hasn't Stopped Atlanta Falcons Players From Organizing Offseason Workouts

While some NFL players are spending their lockout time running trackplaying soccerboxing, and pro rasslin'*, the Atlanta Falcons have put together their own offseason workout program, coordinated by veteran LB Coy Wire. As the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter reports, 30 Falcons players are working out together at a Cumming, Georgia facility.

While QB Matt Ryan and WR Roddy White are expected to join the group next week #hollywood, LB Spencer Adkins, OL Robert Bruggeman, WR Harry Douglas, CB Brent Grimes, OL Mike Johnson, LB Curtis Lofton, WR Kerry Meier**, LB Mike Peterson, OT Garrett Reynolds, safety Shann Schillinger, WR Andy Strickland, and OG Jose Valdez are listed among those participating.

The players say their workouts are based on their usual work with team director of athletic performance Jeff Fish. They even say they're planning to conduct their own mini-camp and so forth if the lockout persists.

* All of which are perfectly viable training methods and preferable to just about anything else a wealthy pro athlete could do with unlimited free time. Just not preferable to training for football.

** Hey, apparently Kerry Meier's healthy now.
