New York Jets may change training camp location


The New York Jets are considering a change when it comes to their offseason program. According to the team, they have reached a point in their agreement with the State University of New York College at Cortland (SUNY) that enables them to consider training camp options for the coming summer.

The Jets will look at how other venues compare to their current arrangement at SUNY Cortland to make sure it offers the best training camp experience for its players, coaches and fans.

“SUNY Cortland’s been great to us,” said general manager John Idzik. “They’re extremely hospitable and the campus is a terrific setting for our team to bond and prepare for the upcoming season. At this time, we simply wish to perform our due diligence to ensure we have the best possible environment for our camp.”

The Jets have held four of the past five training camps at SUNY Cortland and have been pleased with the way the university, the region and Jets fans have embraced them during the month-long stay in upstate New York.

“Our unique partnership with the Jets has been positive for the college, Central New York and, of course, the team,”  SUNY Cortland President Erik Bitterbaum said. “We fully expected the Jets to examine their options, as our agreement allows. And we are confident that our top-notch facilities, hard-working staff and welcoming community will remain an attractive option.”
