Redskins look into moving training camp

Redskins owner Dan Snyder mentioned at the Super Bowl that the Redskins were looking into building new team facilities, possibly closer to their stadium.

Those facilities likely won’t be ready until 2012 at the earliest, but the team may move training camp locations in the meantime.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports the Redskins have made arrangements to move to Fairfax in August, and have had discussions about using George Mason University’s practice fields.  The Redskins have held camp at Redskins Park in Ashburn since 2002.

Redskins senior vice president Tony Wyllie said the team hasn’t settled on any change and is just “exploring” their options.

(The team does not appear to be considering a local airport hangar or Lifetime Fitness as possible camp sites.)
