Vanden Bosch Hunting for Workout Facility

Lions fans saw Kyle Vanden Bosch relentlessly prowling around the field in his pursuit for ball carriers and quarterbacks in 2010 and his commitment to hard work and preparation fueled those efforts.  With the labor situation still up in the air, the Detroit Free Press is reporting that KVB is hunting for a gym to host any Lions wanting to engage in offseason lifting of their own.

Normally the offseason strength and conditioning programs start in March as players are encouraged to come to the team facilities and workout.  However, until a new CBA is signed players are not allowed in team facilities or to participate in team organized workouts.  KVB is looking to find a place for the players to still participate in an offseason strength and conditioning program organized on their own.

Vanden Bosch is the Lions’ NFLPA player representative and some have opined that the players working out on their own undermines the NFLPA’s efforts to negotiate a fair deal since the players are working for free.  Since the Lions are preparing to lift weights and not hold practice sessions this is less likely to ruffle anybody’s feathers.  Plus if the labor negotiations drag out, the players need to keep in shape to avoid any injuries when games finally start.
