Some NFL teams are still holding training camps on college campuses. That means big NFL players having to reside in the dorms, just like back in college. But what happens if you miss your chance to check in to your dorm? It seems you are out of luck if you a member of the Green Bay Packers.

Martellus Bennett found out the hard way the price for missing check-in at Packers training camp in at St. Norbert College. After missing the time to check in to his dorm, Bennett was locked out with no place to sleep. And since he apparently couldn’t find a dorm to crash for the night, he decided to camp out in front of his locker at nearby Lambeau Field.

“Just got to Green Bay not too long ago and couldn’t get into the dorms, so now I’m sleeping on the floor [in front of] my locker,” Bennett said in an Instagram video. “Sleeping on the floor actually doesn’t bother me, I actually like to sleep on the floor from time to time. Honestly. I should’ve told somebody I’d be getting in late tonight.”

Bennett may be a veteran in the NFL, but this was quite the rookie mistake.
