Although the offseason has just started, we already have training camp on our mind. We've reached a point in our agreement with SUNY Cortland that enables us to consider our training camp options for the coming summer. We will look at how other venues compare to our current arrangements to make sure we are getting the most out of our camp experience for players, coaches and fans.
"SUNY Cortland's been great to us," said general manager John Idzik. "They're extremely hospitable and the campus is a terrific setting for our team to bond and prepare for the upcoming season. At this time, we simply wish to perform our due diligence to ensure we have the best possible environment for our camp."
We have conducted four of the past five training camps at SUNY Cortland and have been pleased with the way the university, the town, the region and Jets fans have embraced us during our month-long stay in upstate New York.
"Our unique partnership with the Jets has been positive for the college, Central New York and, of course, the team," SUNY Cortland President Erik Bitterbaum said. "We fully expected the Jets to examine their options, as our agreement allows. And we are confident that our top-notch facilities, hard-working staff and welcoming community will remain an attractive option."
