Antrel Rolle Is Tired Of The Supposed Lockout Deadlines As Well

We are Charlie Brown

This most recent "report" of a lockout end date by Chris Mortenson has seemingly been the straw that broke the camel's back as far as the patience of a lot of fans and players. After the media pulling a Lucy on Charlie Brown on us time and time again this summer, many have had enough with the supposed deadlines. I sure am and so are the players.

The latest to cast some doubt on the most recent lockout end date is Antrel Rolle, who says he's been hearing that the lockout is about to end all summer.

"To be honest with you I have been hearing that it is going to get done in a week, two weeks, ever since the beginning of March, so I'm at the point right now that whenever it happens I'll be ready and whenever I get that call I'll be ready. That's the only thing I'm looking forward to right now."

He also had an interesting quote on how much prep time a player should need before they can be ready to play.

"We have been playing this sport of football for a long time. It's not going to take to long to get back into football shape and maybe a week and a half, two weeks maximum."

There's not a player in the NFL that doesn't think training camp is too long and I would tend to agree with Rolle that it won't take as long as some suggest for these guys to be ready physically. Where things will almost certainly get messy is with rookies and teams with new coaching staffs trying to implement new schemes. Guys can get ready to play physically pretty quick, but mentally is another story.
