I think St. Louis had one about nine years ago when I was in Jr. High. It's pretty much when all other hope is lost. Even then I don't know if any schlub off the street can try out. I'm pretty sure you have to be an unsigned free agent, or some college guy who didn't get picked up in the draft.

If the worst happens and we have a lockout in 2011, there may be a lot of tryouts that are open to any schlub off the street.

I'm sure someone is working on a screening process as we speak, however.

Generally, teams in need will invite a couple dozen non-drafted free agents after the draft to evaluate. They generally will not consider people off the streets unless they have had some recent football experience.

There was a recent story on this scam on PBS (I think Frontline) where a number of teams have conducted these "tryouts" and not only were the schmos that showed up never signed to a contract, they were never seen again. They implied that those that weren't shipped off overseas to be raped by Australian rugby players were eaten by the teams' offensive linemen.
