Jets Returning to Cortland for Training Camp

The Jets have announced they are returning to SUNY Cortland for training camp in 2014.

"I love the fact that we are going back to Cortland," said head coach Rex Ryan, who has held four of his five training camps at the university since becoming head coach in 2009. "Everyone knows how I feel about going away. I think it is a big part of building our team camaraderie. The community, the school and the people of Cortland have been outstanding and we are all excited to be going back this summer."

General manager John Idzik, who experienced Cortland as the Jets GM for the first time last year, also is happy to be making the trip back to Central New York.

"The school and the community have joined together to continually provide a terrific backdrop for our team to come together at a critical stage of our season," Idzik said. "I'm pleased that we are returning to Cortland for training camp again."

The Jets are going against the league trend of staying at home for camp, where teams have access to state of the art facilities.

Does it make a big difference where a team trains, though? Probably not. Of the last six Super Bowl Champions, three have trained at their home facility, and three have traveled.
