New York Jets to skip Cortland training camp

By Marc A. Greenberg

Score one for the NFL lockout.

Having trained in at Cortland State University in New York for the past two seasons, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan had said he likes the bonding and team unity that the getaway provides for the Jets.

Well, that won’t be happening this season.  Due to the current lockout and its uncertainty, the Jets announced today that they will be conducting their training camp at their facility in Florham Park, New Jersey and not at Cortland State University.

The Jets become the second NFL team to change training camp plans because of the owners’ lockout of the players.  The Baltimore Ravens announced last week that they would forego camp in Winchester, Md. to remain at their complex.

Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum says the team felt it was best to remain at its practice facility in Florham Park, N.J. but that the Jets plan to train in Cortland in 2012.
