The Lockout is Lifted... Or Is It?

A player, we think it was Eddie Royal, just showed up. The code to the gate didn't work, so he drove off.less than a minute ago via ÜberSocial Favorite Retweet Reply


So much for the lockout being lifted. A player (allegedly wide receiver Eddie Royal) arrived at the Dove Valley facility this morning and attempted to get in. Unfortunately, access was denied and the player left the facility.

Just a day after having the lockout lifted, teams were supposed to allow players into the facility and, despite having no planned activities for the players to do, the organization was still to welcome the players and treat them with respect.

There has been a lot of discussion back and forth between the players about whether or not to show up today, but the few who did were met with a lock that they could not open. It's a bit disappointing that the players are still locked out, despite the lockout being lifted yesterday. In this case, however, the Broncos have not changed the locks. Whatever the reason for the player leaving the facility without entry, it seems like it's not the fault of the Broncos. 

Update 11:00 am MST:

Broncos spokesman said the gate code has not been changed. So perhaps the player forgot it in all these months.less than a minute ago via ÜberSocial Favorite Retweet Reply

 

For all you theorists out there, here are a few more possibilities:

The player forgot the code after not showing up in months.
The player forgot something at home.
The player decided at the last moment that he really didn't want to go.

Update 11:30 am MST:

I've been told that the man in a silver audi was not a player, but a guy here for a meeting w an asst coach.less than a minute ago via ÜberSocial Favorite Retweet Reply

 

There you have it. The lifted lockout from yesterday specified that players should be allowed into the facilities. However, it didn't say anything about allowing in people who are just meeting with assistant coaches. Case closed. Players on other teams weren't so lucky.
