Several prominent agents have told their players not to do a stitch of working out as the NFL lockout continues, CNBC has learned.
No lifting weights. No pickup basketball games.
That's a quick turnaround from when the lockout was briefly lifted and many agents told their players, who had big workout bonuses, to immediately show up to team facilities.
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.
