MILWAUKEE (AP) - With no end in sight for the NFL lockout, a group of Green Bay Packers offensive linemen are in Tennessee this week for group workouts.
Wells said the sessions are being run by his trainer, Judd Granzow of M.A.D. Sports Training. The group chose Nashville because both Wells and left tackle Chad Clifton live the area during the offseason.
“A couple of the guys expressed a want to get together and see one another as well as work out together,” Wells said. “I took the opportunity, since Chad Clifton and I live near Nashville, to have the guys come here.”
NFL players are prohibited from working out at team facilities during the lockout.
A handful of teams have held large-scale, player-organized workouts away from team facilities during the lockout, but the reigning Super Bowl champions have not _ in large part because so many Packers players live elsewhere during the offseason.
Several players are coming back to Wisconsin for wide receiver Donald Driver’s charity softball game on Sunday, and Packers players are scheduled to receive their Super Bowl rings in a June 16 ceremony at Lambeau Field.
Although contact between players and team officials generally is prohibited during the work stoppage, the Packers received clearance from the NFL to hold the ring ceremony even if the lockout remains in effect.
