Giants still planning to get away for training camp
The New York Jets might have pulled the plug on getting away for training camp, but the New York Giants have not abandoned their summer plans.
The Jets, on Friday, became the second team in the league to announce they will remain at their year-round facility instead of going to a nearby college for training camp. The Baltimore Ravens are also staying at home with starting dates for camps up in the air because of the unresolved labor situation.
Paul Schwartz of the New York Post reports that the Giants still plan to pack their bags for the University of Albany next month. The Giants have trained their annually since 1996.
“We continue to stay in touch with the university and play it by ear,” team spokesman Pat Hanlon told Schwartz. “Our hope remains to hold camp in Albany.”
The Jets were scheduled to go to SUNY-Cortland.
