According to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday, the NFL has apparently told teams that they will all have to stay at their team facilities during this summer’s training camps.

This effectively answers any questions about whether or not teams would have been able to host joint practices or host their camps in venues outside of their home city. Teams that usually travel a for camp include the Cowboys, Bills, Colts, and Chiefs.

The Los Angeles Chargers do not technically have a facility in the same city as their stadium but it’s fairly local, nonetheless.

As I stated earlier, there will now be no chance for teams to host practices with one another prior to their preseason exhibitions, which may be detrimental to the develop of rookies and other young players who take advantage of the opportunity to play against different players and unfamiliar schemes. This year, the Bolts would have likely split practices with the Rams prior to the third preseason game in August.

It’s not substantial news, but it’s still a teeny-tiny baby step towards football happening as usual this fall.

Now let’s check out some links.
