George Wilson Limits Rookies At Bills Workouts

Over 30 members of the Buffalo Bills began a week's worth of workouts yesterday. With the NFL lockout still on in full force, the Bills limited themselves to lifting weights, conditioning and agility work, and very limited walk-through sessions led by veteran players that introduced some of the younger players to very basic offensive and defensive concepts.

The limited nature of the workouts was expected. For two rookies in attendance - third-round pick Kelvin Sheppard, and fourth-round pick Da'Norris Searcy - they were limited even further by safety and union representative George Wilson, per a report from Paul Hamilton at WGR 550.

"I told the guys, with these rookies not being under contract and with them not having insurance, we have to look out for their best interests, so they come in, they get a lift in with us," Wilson explained to reporters. "I'm not allowing them to get on the field on any of the agility or the conditioning. It's just to help them to be able to put faces with names, get to know people at their position."

The workouts continue this morning, and it's possible that more veteran players - including linebacker Andra Davis and cornerback Terrence McGee - will be joining the group assembled yesterday.
