NFL tells teams they must remain at home facility during training camp

The NFL has notified teams that they must remain stationed at their home facility for the entirety of training camp.

The days of heading up to Cortland, NY for training camp are over which means the news that hit all 32 NFL franchises on Tuesday doesn’t impact the New York Jets to an incredible degree.

The NFL has notified the teams that they will not be allowed to hold any events (practices, scrimmages, etc.) outside of their home facilities during this summer’s training camp, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“And so the NFL has told all its teams that they must stay at their team facilities for this summer’s training camps,” Schefter tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

Considering the Jets use the Atlantic Health Training Facility in Florham Park, NJ as their training camp location, there shouldn’t be too much worry.

Forget about any joint practices this summer. Two years ago, the Jets traveled down to Washington D.C. for a joint practice with the Washington Redskins. Nothing of the sort will be slated this year.

It’s a small price to pay for a season of actually playing football—one that most officials believe will go on as regularly scheduled.

“Here’s why all teams will be home for training camp: the NFL and NFLPA wanted to limit the need for travel and also limit the risk of maintaining two facilities. They wanted the focus all on one. Last year 10 teams had camp away from facility; this year, none.”

Life will go on as normal for both the Jets and New England Patriots, who held training camp at their normal facilities a year ago. But for the Buffalo Bills, who are used to going to St. John Fisher College, and the Miami Dolphins, whose 2019 camp at Davie Facility was there last, life will be a bit different this time around.

The preseason will serve as the official first chance all NFL players get to hit an individual not on his team.
