Raiders coach Hue Jackson told reporters at the NFL owners meetings he thinks players will be ready to play whenever an agreement is reached.
“I think a pro football player knows what his duties are and what he needs to do to prepare himself to play,” Jackson said. “There’s a lot being made right now about guys getting together to work out. Is there some good to that?
“There’s no question there is. But most players right now are probably preparing their bodies to get ready for an offseason program, so I would think if you play in the National Football League, you’re doing everything you can do get your bodies and minds right so you can be ready to go play.”
