Greg Jennings: "We Need Training Camp"

Greg Jennings divulged what all NFL players know to be true but never want to admit: he needs training camp.

Speaking to Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Jennings equated summer training camp and quality football in 2011.

"I don't mind missing out on OTAs and all that," Jennings said. But he added, "we need training camp. As much as we hate it, guys need that training camp to get that rust off and in this case, to get the team back together where we're functioning as a team."

The Pro Bowl wide receiver also expressed uncertainty over the effectiveness of player-organized workouts during the lockout.

"I'm kind of on the fence with that," Jennings said. "It would be great to get together with all the guys to get a feel for what everybody is doing. But I don't know how beneficial that would be because a lot of guys on our team have their individual trainer."

While players, fans, and analysts disagree about the necessity of player-run workouts, I think we can all agree that missing training camp would be detrimental to the 2011 season.

And as NFL.com's Albert Breer notes, the coming weeks provide the best window to negotiate and salvage a complete 2011 season, training camp and all.
