More team workouts for NFC North players

As the NFL lockout continues, let's get updated on new plans for some players-only workouts.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford tweeted that players will gather in Detroit in "early June" for a second round of team drills. The first set, which took place last week, featured upwards of 40 players.

Green Bay Packers guard Josh Sitton tweeted that Packers offensive linemen soon will gather in Nashville to work out together. Two of their starters, center Scott Wells and left tackle Chad Clifton, have Tennessee roots.

Earlier this spring, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said it would be "difficult" to arrange offseason workouts among offensive skill position players because of their disparate family lives and geography. Meanwhile, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has organized some private workouts with receivers in the north Chicago suburbs.

And in a recent appearance on ESPN's "First Take," Minnesota Vikings rookie quarterback Christian Ponder said he is hoping to get some receivers together near Tampa. He has been working with Vikings receiver Greg Camarillo to get organized.

"He's kind of helped me out with this whole process," Ponder said. "I was talking to a few guys and Greg really took initiative with me to get a hold of certain guys and really help me out. I'm a competitive guy. I see all these other guys practicing. I know we're behind the eight ball. We're a step behind. Nothing was happening yet. I had to get something done."
