Vikings plan lockout practices
Three different Vikings offensive players told the Pioneer Press that they expect to get together for practices during a lockout to work on whatever aspects of new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave’s offense that they can learn. During a lockout, the players wouldn’t be able to get any coaching from Musgrave, but there’s nothing stopping the players from getting a playbook and some tape from Musgrave now and working things out on their own once the lockout starts.

Re: Vikings plan lockout practices
As a Vikings fan I'm happy to see players that are competed to do all they can to progress but I'm a little curious about what happens to a player that gets hurt during these (as they are nonteam lockout practices) and this doesn't really help the NFLPA with pushing the owners to get things done as its the owners tossed out the old CBA and want more and more out of a new one.

Teams with new coordinators and head coaches are pretty much hosed.
Players working out with their team mates may not be well received by the players union as well.
Here is another article addressing the subject.
The penalties sound severe.“What takes a quarterback to the next level is not arm strength or mobility or any of that stuff. It’s the ability to play on critical downs. Manage third downs, or red zones or four-minute or two-minute situations"
