ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Fullback Spencer Larsen was the first Denver Broncos player to show up for work Friday when the NFL reopened for business.
Larsen showed up at 6:30 a.m., 90 minutes before any of his teammates. The Broncos told their players that workouts Friday and Monday are voluntary and the offseason conditioning program starts Tuesday.
Larsen is known as a workout fiend but he said he had other reasons for showing up at the crack of dawn: With four kids under 3, he needed some peace and quiet, and besides, his wife, Ann, was the one pushing him out the door because he's been messing up his children's schedules over the last two months.
Safety Brian Dawkins, a member of the players association's executive board, said he was eager to pick up his new defensive playbook.
