During his press conference talking about the pick of Patrick Peterson, coach Ken Whisenhunt said — with the in-flux labor situation currently opening a window for players to work out — that the team has talked to a number of players and he expects some to come in Friday morning for the first off-season strength and conditioning work.
“It will be exciting to have guys at the facility,” Whisenhunt said. “It’s nice to have contact with these guys immediately. We got a number of calls and communication from players, and that’s exciting. When your players say they want to be here working out, I know they didn’t miss (strength and conditioning coach) John Lott, but they say they want to work out and that’s a good thing.”
Whisenhunt said he doesn’t know how many will come, since he knows many are out of town and this resolution — however tenuous it might be — just happened.
“It’s short notice,” Whisenhunt said. “Whatever we get tomorrow I will be excited. They are here working out. It’s hard to imagine … who knows if they are even around. It’s not something I am concerned about. Whoever shows up, I will be happy about.”
