New Orleans Saints restricted free agent left tackle Jammal Brown is planning to skip offseason workout program

Chuck Cook / The Times-PicayuneNew Orleans Saints left tackle Jammal Brown says he's not going to report for the team's offseason conditioning program Monday.New Orleans Saints restricted free agent left tackle Jammal Brown said he has not yet signed his qualifying offer from the Saints, and he is not planning to attend the team's offseason conditioning program when it begins next Monday.

"I don't consider it a holdout. I'm just patiently waiting," said Brown, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this year before new league rules went into effect, making all free agents with less than six years of experience into restricted free agents.

The Saints offered Brown a one-year qualifying tender of $3.619 million, which is lofty but nowhere near the kind of money the two-time Pro Bowler would have made on the open market.

Re: Jammal Brown to skip offseason workouts

you get hurt for the entire season last year

you get a free super bowl ring....you play on a team completely capable of repeating and you can actually earn your ring

you play on a team that is more loved by its home city than any other sports franchise IN THE WORLD

and your going to sit on ur butt while the rest of the team gets better

you earn no sympathy from me or anyone else by doing this......you want a better contract......EARN IT

i hope to god bushrod doesnt play like **** like he did last year and takes your spot if you cant manage to get over a few cents

no matter how much i cheer you on and support you as a player, you will never get a huge contract extension after you sit an entire season on the bench

Maybe he's in tip top shape already and needn't work out with the team!

exactly- maybe he gets a look after the draft, but how can he expect more money after a zero production year when the team showed they did not need him?

and how attractive is he to other teams if he is not working out?
