With the NFL Lockout still in place players for some NFL teams have begun organizing their own workouts. It was good to hear this afternoon, via reports by both Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News and Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger, that the New York Giants have joined those ranks.
Per both accounts, quarterback Eli Manning has put together what basically amounts to a passing camp at Hoboken (N.J.) High School. Garafolo reported that there were 11 players working out at the high school, and Vacchiano said the passing camp was expected to last around two weeks. Vacchiano also reported that if the lockout continues some Giants' players will attend the Manning Passing Academy -- an annual family-run camp for young quarterbacks -- this July.
All of this is good news. It means players are doing the best they can to get their work in under bad circumstances. Of course, it would be best if this lockout would just end and teams could get back to conducting normal business.
