Titans focus on workouts in lockout limbo
Friday, May 27, 2011
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- For the Tennessee Titans and all teams, the NFL lockout has left players pretty much on their own to work out.
Up to 15 Titans' players regularly gather for sprints and exercise on a high school field, and Vanderbilt University has opened its weight room to the team. The rest of the roster is scattered around the country with players choosing to stay close to their offseason homes.
Cornerback Cortland Finnegan is getting antsy to test himself in real drills against a receiver.
He says the Titans have new coaches, no starting quarterback on the roster and little contact with each other. He's trying to remedy that by scheduling their first real minicamp in June with rookie quarterback Jake Locker expected to attend.
