Players Planning Unofficial Minicamp During Lockout

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee Titans players are hoping for a big turnout for an upcoming unofficial minicamp in Nashville as the NFL lockout drags into the summer.

Linebacker Gerald McRath told The Tennessean he's hoping 40-plus players will make it for the workouts, set for Wednesday and Thursday. McRath said players are trying to find rookies to attend, so the veteran players can teach newcomers the ins-and-outs of the system.

Cornerback Cortland Finnegan, one of the ringleaders, said the workouts at a Nashville high school will help the team learn as it adjusts to a new coach and new schemes.

Up to 15 players have gathered at times for sprints and exercise on a high school field, and Vanderbilt University has opened its weight room to them as well.
