Minnesota Vikings players reportedly planning lockout practices

Last week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman said he planned on organizaing team events if there is a lockout. Now another team, the Minnesota Vikings, plan to do the same.

According to a report in the Pioneer Press, three Vikings players said they will get together for practices during a lockout. During a lockout, the players wouldn’t be able to get any coaching from the staff.

In the Pioneer Press article, Vikings second-year quarterback Joe Webb said, “We almost have to be our own coaches.”

For teams like the Vikings, who have a new offensive coordinator, the offseason is crucial to learning a new offense.

The NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement is scheduled to expire after March 3, 2011.
