Football Information 2019 Regular English

​NFL TRAINING CAMPS OPEN THIS WEEK

NFL clubs this week begin on-field preparations for the 2019 season. The Denver Broncos, whose rookies and veterans report Wednesday, will become the first team to hold a full-squad practice (Thursday morning). Denver meets the Atlanta Falcons in the NFL/Hall of Fame Game (August 1; NBC, 8:00 PM ET) in Canton, OH.

Also on Wednesday, rookies will report for the Arizona Cardinals, Baltimore Ravens and Seattle Seahawks. By the end of the week, the Falcons (Thursday), Detroit Lions (Thursday), New Orleans Saints (Thursday) and New York Jets (Friday) will welcome first-year players. All 32 NFL teams will be in camp by July 26.

In a growing trend, 20 clubs have scheduled joint practices with other teams. The Chargers and Rams (August 1 at the Jack Hammett Sports Complex in Costa Mesa, CA, and August 3 at the University of California-Irvine) are the first teams scheduled to see another color during camp. The two Los Angeles clubs are among six teams that will practice against multiple opponents. Baltimore, Detroit, Houston and New England also will see two foes in camp.

This year, 22 of 32 teams (69 percent) will be “staying home” for training camp. Teams considered to be “staying home” hold camp at their respective practice facility, home stadium or at a site within 10 miles of their team headquarters. In 2000, only 10 of 31 (32 percent) teams stayed close to home.

While several teams are staying close to home for camp, 10 teams still employ the philosophy of holding camp away from their facilities. 

Green Bay and Pittsburgh hold the longest active relationships with their respective camp locations. While the Packers hold practice at their primary facilities near Lambeau Field, they’re housing their players at St. Norbert College in De Pere, WI, for a 62nd consecutive summer. The Steelers will train at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA, for the 54th straight season.

The number of NFL teams that stayed home for training camp since 2000:
