The 31-year old Scott Shanle is estranged from his former team and will remain that way until the lockout is lifted and players can return to their normal workplace.

“Obviously, I would like to be there but for me I would never forgive myself if I went to work out with the team and did something stupid while I wasn’t under contract, especially under these circumstances,’’ Shanle told SportsNOLA.com on Thursday.

“You can say what you want, that guys can go at their own speed this time of year. But the bottom line is when you get around other guys and you start to compete, you’re not just going to go through the motions. The danger comes when you’re competing. It’s in our nature to do that. You can watch film and stuff like that but once you get out on the field, it gets competitive.’’

It should be noted that a number of restricted and unrestricted free agents participated in Tuesday’s practice at Tulane, including strong safety Roman Harper, tight end David Thomas, center Jonathan Goodwin, safety Darren Sharper, safety Pierson Prioleau, left tackle Jermon Bushrod and offensive lineman Zach Strief, among others.

It's only logical he looks out for himself... if he doesn't, who will. He knows the system well and can work out on his own.
