CNBC's Darren Rovell on NFL players being advised to not work out while negotiations continue during the lockout. The fear is, if any players get hurt, they could be released without pay once the lockout ends.
Several prominent agents have told their players not to do a stitch of working out as the NFL lockout continues. No lifting weights. No pickup basketball games. It's smart advice if the players want to make sure they're guaranteed their money for next season, if that season ever comes. When players get hurt during team-sanctioned mini-camps, they are covered. Any injury that they suffer still guarantees them the money that they are owed for that season.
