Back to work!

NFL clubs will begin their on-field preparations for Kickoff 2013 this week, starting with the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins on Saturday, July 20 when their veterans and rookies report. By Saturday, July 27, every NFL team will be in camp.

More and more, teams are training at their regular-season headquarters. This year, more than half the league (19 of 32, 59 percent) will be “staying home” for training camp.In 2000, only five of 31 (16 percent) teams stayed close to home.

For the first time in 17 seasons, the Philadelphia Eagles will not conduct training camp at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The Eagles have opted to hold training camp at their home facility, the NovaCare Complex in Philadelphia.

“I just think we have everything here so the fact that we would pack everything up and move, that didn't make sense to me,” says Eagles first-year head coach Chip Kelly on the advantages of training camp being held at the NovaCare Complex. “All our video stuff is here. Our training facility in terms of how we want to lift is here. Why would you move everything to go somewhere else?”

The Giants, too, are looking forward to having all the comforts of home at their disposal as they return to the Timex Performance Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey this summer. The Giants last held training camp at the Timex Performance Center in 2011 before a season culminating in the franchise’s eighth NFL championship. Last season, the Giants trained at the University at Albany, which hosted the Giants in Albany, New York 16 of the past 17 years.

The numbers may prove home-base popularity is a growing league-wide trend, but there are still teams employing the “old-time” philosophy of encamping away. 

The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the teams that “come together” away from home (Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania).

“I love this process, I love going to camp, I love team-building, readying ourselves to pursue our goals,” says Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin. “I am extremely excited.”

The NFL training camp longevity king? The Green Bay Packers, who return on July 25 for their 56th consecutive summer at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin.

The Washington Redskins will conduct their training camp away from Redskins Park for the first time since 2003. The Redskins will hold training camp this year at the Bon Secours Training Center in Richmond, Virginia.

“I think us going to Richmond will be great for the team,” says Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III “I think it is good for team bonding because we’ll be out in a new city. It kind of forces guys to have to hang out with each other – not that guys don’t want to. It will truly feel like a training camp. It will be the first experience for me because I’ve always been around wherever we work out, especially in college, so it’ll be fun.”
